Cheap Plastic Pearls

Not so long ago I attended a baptism at a Catholic church. Try as I might, I still can’t forget the little illustrative story the priest told as part of his performance of the ritual.

The gist of the story is this: A father and his little daughter, Emily, go into one of those “dollar stores.” . . .
