How firm a "Plantation"
For church Carter was asked to give a little talk on Easter, which turned out beautifully and funny at the same time. Rob read him the Easter story and then asked Carter questions and from that he wrote his talk. Some of the key lines from it were, "Lots of people loved Jesus, but the bad guys didn't" and "after 3 days his friends came to see his body" and " Some bad guys, made a bad decision and crucified Jesus on the cross." But my absolute favorite wasn't in his talk at all. Carter kept saying to Rob "What about the Plantation!" Rob sorta confused asked "you mean the plan of salvation?" And Carter adamant replied "NO, the plantation! You know were the wise guy build his house upon the rock, and the other guy on the sand!" Rob finally realized Carter was trying to talk about having a firm foundation! But plantation works just as well.
