I suppose you can at least say that they didn't Seuss-size the Lord's prayer.

One hopes they don't replace the wine and bread with green eggs and ham.

They would have to change the words of institution to identify Christ with the green eggs and ham in the first person.
And FWIW, these are our Fathers too, you know.

I don't know which is wackier: this or the U2charist they did a few years ago near me. Silly Protestants, the Eucharist is for the Orthodox!  :D

I admit, while horrible, this is well-written in the Seussian style. Maybe this is what they have at the Church of Whoville. But, "First Reading: Yertle the Turtle" ? LOL, wow.

My former confession never tried anything like this, but I always chuckled to myself when the adults acted like idiots to try to engage the kids. But the kids were not engaged, they were embarrassed.

From there to here,
