Cross and Sail?

I was talking with Caden this morning, who goes to preschool here at the church.

"Do you work on a ship?" he asked.

"No," I said with a puzzled look.

"Then why to you have a ship there?" he wondered, pointing to my nametag.

On my nametag is a cross-and-flame Methodist logo. Which I guess looks a bit like a sail on a mast, especially if you're Caden. I never noticed that before!

Things could have been worse; he could have thought it was some sort of KKK burning-cross symbol.

There's a sermon there somewhere...

It's a good riddle. We don't work on a ship, but we are fishermen -- of people! What a smart boy! - JCS

Cute! Yeah, I'm sure there's a sermon there.

Met your grandfather at the Jurisdictional ice cream social last night. What a wonderful man! Told some great little stories on your childhood vacations with him.

The beauty of a child - what a vision! - somehow their innocence and simplicity is so prefectly beautiful and astoundingly brilliant - thanks for sharing Rev. Andy!
