Why not give God a second chance?

Two weeks ago, after the late mass some of the acolytes were "divesting" (unvesting?) and the conversation was really interesting.

They were talking about the service, what they'd done wrong and how much fun it had been. One of the acolytes said, "But it's okay because we always get a second chance."

Our rector said, "Oh, that would make a good poster - God always give you a second chance." One of the acolytes replied, "Why not give God a second chance."

We were all stunned, to say the least. This is the fruit of that conversation in the sacristy.
