As a Sunday School Teacher we hear a lot of funny things and get a lot of questions that just make us smile. One time I asked "what did Jesus say to the storm to make it stop?" I wanted the answer "peace be still" but got "please be still" instead. Another time we were talking about the fruit of the spirit and a child made the comment "I don't get the apple." Very confused, thinking he was talking about the name on the apple I asked him to explain more. He said "apple-stolic, ya know!" I couldn't help but giggle because we call ourselves "Apostolics."
Got to love kids!
