A group of young boys were always getting into trouble on the estate so the local vicar decided to intervene and speak to each of them about their behaviour.
When it was Johnny’s turn to go in, he sat down nervously wondering what was going to happen. As with the other boys, the vicar decided to find out how much the boy knew about God and whether he understood the difference between right and wrong.
The vicar began with the question, “Where is God?”
Johnny stared at him in amazement but did not answer.
Again the question was asked, this time more forcibly. “I said, where is God,” he bellowed.
Frightened out of his skin, Johnny raced from the room, ran all the way home and hid in the wardrobe. His older brother followed him upstairs and shouted through the door.
“Oh Tom, we really are in trouble this time. God has gone missing and they think we did it.”
