It’s Sunday morning and the faithful have gathered. The mention a moment ago of the pawn shop as an analogy for what Jesus has done for us has me thinking of an old story. It’s the story of a boy who builds a toy sailboat. I don’t remember just how it gets away from him, but he loses the boat and then some time later sees it in a shop window. After he purchases it from the shopkeeper and is carrying it home, he looks at the sailboat in his hands and says, "Little boat, you are twice mine. You are mine because I made you, and mine because I bought you."
