My grandson Josh asked, “Did Jesus really live? Maybe he didn’t and it was just a good story someone made up.”
So I sat down and wrote him this limerick and gave him a stack of books from my library. The topic has not come up again since.
Was there really a man named Jesus?
Or do the Catholics just try to tease us?
I went to the places,
Studied books for all traces,
And discovered he’s real which should please us.
A Limerick just sent to me from Darrell, a new convert, in response to the limerick I just posted:
There once was a man in much doubt,
What his Protestant faith was about.
Then a great guy named Steve
Helped the man to believe
In the Church that his Savior laid out.
