Summer Challenge From the Minister With the thunderstorm that took out our power for four hours, I think Summer could really be starting!   The following appeared in another church’s magazine years ago…. As a bit of light summer relief, I invite you write a similar piece to this, where the process works the other way around and the church grows (Contributions for the Autumn magazine?). Ten little Christians standing in a line. One disliked the preacher (I’m not going when he’s preaching) – then there were nine. Nine little Christians stayed up very late One overslept (a bad habit started) – then there were eight. Eight little Christians on their way to heaven, One got distracted then there were seven Seven little Christians said ‘You can’t teach us new tricks’ One disliked new hymns and music – so then there were six. Six little Christians (are we yet alive?), One said it was boring then there were five. Five little Christians wishing there were more They started quarrelling (one walked out) then there were four Four little Christians as cosy as can be. They didn’t welcome newcomers – and soon there were three Three little Christians wondering what to do (they were so few), One joined a sporty set then there were two,. Two little Christians, our rhyme is nearly done Both wanted to be boss – so that left one. Elizabeth
