Kraft Theology (Now 35% Cheesier)

It's almost time for back to school, and I'm sure that will mean new material and more laughs.  But until the commute resumes, we have a special post from Meredith Jubilee and Madeline Jane's mommy, who obviously drew the short straw today and hosted Walt and Patrick in addition to her own.

Background: Neighborhood Church is having its first ever baptism tonight at the same pool in which most of the Neighborhood Church kids have had swim lessons.  This has resulted in many discussions among the adults about how to explain baptism to five-year olds and, more importantly, how to explain that they don't get to swim.  We're still not sure about either, but the kids have obviously made great strides with the theology . . .  in spite of their parents.

According to Kate, here's how it went down:

Mer:  Mom, when are Walt and Patrick leaving?

Mom:  In about an hour.  But then we'll see them again at the baptism tonight.

Walt:  What's a Baptist?

Mer:  I'll tell you Walt.

Walt:  No, wait.  I already know.  It's when they hold you under to see how long you can hold your breath. My mom told me.

Mer:  No, Walt.  That's not it.  It's when you're dipped in the pool to show that you love God, and then you eat mac 'n cheese.
