the pastor says that saying something bad to someone is just as bad as stealing. "is that how I stole from Billy," says Jenny, "by hurting his reputation." "yes Jenny," says Papa. once the church is done Jenny and Billy think about it a lot. they ask papa how they can fix it.
"well you could start by saying sorry to each other," says Papa. "sorry," said Billy and Jenny. "now what," asks Jenny. Papa says to go back to school and tell everybody that it wasn't all true.
