“You know, sometimes in life, it seems like there’s no way out. Like a sheep, trapped in a maze, designed by wolves. You know that, if you’re ever in that situation, there are always two doors to choose from. Through the first door, oh it’s easy to get through that door, and on the other side waiting for you, all the yummiest treats you could imagine: Fanta, Doritos, L&P, Burger Rings, Coke Zero…but you know what, there’s also another door. Not the Burger Ring door, not the Fanta door. Another door that’s harder to get through. Guess what’s on the other side? Anyone want to take a guess?”
“Vegetables?” says Ricky uncertainly.
“No, not vegetables, no,” the minister replies, slightly offended.
“Jesus?” someone else offers.
“You would think Jesus. I thought Jesus the first time I come across that door. Not Jesus. It’s another door. Guess what’s on the other side of that door.”
“Jesus,” the voice comes again, more confidently.
“Jesus, yeah, Jesus. He’s tricky like that, Jesus. So let us pray, to Jesus to please make it a bit easier to get through those doors, to find you and your bounty of…delicious confectionery.”
