‘You can fly!’ he said, and the ducks all quacked with excitement.
‘You can fly! You can fly!’ the duck pastor repeated. More lively quacking from the duck congregation, and many now jumped up and down with excitement at the thought that they could indeed fly.
Then the service came to an end and all the ducks waddled home.
This pointed little fable was told by one of our congregational pastors yesterday and is reproduced here without permission. But I don’t think he’ll mind.
