Well a new term started, Ali back to school and slightly more scary is Dan starting school. There he is in his uniform, happens to be the very same uniform I wore when I started at that school 23 years ago!
I am also very proud of his grasp of complex theology. I know he is only 4, as far as we can tell he hasn’t understood enough about life sin and Jesus to make a commitment to him yet BUT, as i was putting him to bed tonight something quite profound happened. Every night we share things that have made us happy and sad and then we pray about them. Today’s sad thing was all the rain which meant we couldn’t play outside. So I prayer for some sunshine tomorrow. As soon as we stopped praying, he looked at me and said
“God made the rain and the sun, he can do anything”
As if that wasn’t enough, he then went on to explain that there are three bits but 1 God.
“A mummy and daddy and the holy spirit. “
I said ‘close!’,
“oh yeah, sorry, Father, Jesus and the holy spirit. but they all make God.”
Okay so some of you reading would point out there are fine details of 1+1+1=1 but he is 4. I haven’t ever explained it to him! Maybe it was vegetales?
