Can't Take it With You

A really interesting session this afternoon with the Little Pebbles, looking at the story of the Rich Young Ruler.

We spent a while working out how you'd get a camel through the eye of a needle. The Tardis being the best suggestion, in my opinion. And then some lovely imaginative stuff about what we thought happened the Ruler after the encounter with Jesus.

Smirffette suggested he maybe just went off to count his money and make himself happy about his decision.

Dreyland said maybe after he'd thought a bit more about it, and joined the church later on, becoming a prominent backer after Pentecost.

But Eustace suggested that the Rich Young Ruler "died of sadness." You know, I reckon he may well be right.


  1. I think he went away and applied to go on The Apprentice, seeing Alan, sorry, Lord Sugar as a softer option.

  2. There is also the possibility that the Rich young man just went home and spent the lot on wine, women and song and more, wine, women and song.
