By the Book

Our church participates in a program each spring called Lads-2-Leaders, and 7-year-old Christian has already been reading Hebrews in anticipation of next year's convention activities. Knowing how hard older brother, Carson, worked in preparing his speech for this year's convention, Christian is already eager to get started on a speech of his own.

"Dad, Dad!" Christian began excitedly. "What are we going to do for my speech?"

Thinking of next year's convention theme, "Faith Is the Victory," Joe sighed. "I don't know, Christian. I would be happy if you just quoted Hebrews 11."

"But, Dad," Christian replied, shocked, "wouldn't that be plagiarism?"

That is cute! That's great that they are already preparing. We are also getting prepared for L2L in Orlando. It seems we need to get started earlier every year to accomplish all of our goals!
