The Wound of Hope

The Wound of Hope

Disciples preacher and professor Fred Craddock once told a story:

    Used to have a kid down home who’d believe anything you’d tell him. You could say, “The schoolhouse burned down. We’re not having school tomorrow.”

    “Oh boy!” He’d believe it.

    “They’re giving away free watermelons down at the town hall.”

    “Really? Free watermelons?” He’d go running off.
