Have you ever wanted to tell a children’s story about the mediation of Christ which touches on the atonement?

Probably not but in the unlikely event that you have here is a story which touches on those themes.

It is based on  1 John 2:1 “My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. but if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;”

(1 John 2:1, NRSV)
