Children Filter Religion … Differently
My pre-school niece tells me that Jesus is taller than everyone else. He’s the tallest person in the world, bigger than the house we’re in, even though he’s invisibly sitting on the couch next to us.
Me: “How does he do that?”
Niece: “I don’t know, but he can do all kinds of weird stuff.”
My Niece looks at me.
I look at her.
Niece: “It’s true.”
Niece: He even has a weird head.”
(and just like that, I’ve entered the Undiscovered Country)
Me: “Weird how?”
Niece: “He looks… his head looks… he’s got a head like a squirrel head.”
Niece: (with as much gravitas as a 5 year old can muster): “Really, Uncle Eddie.”
Me (clearly impressed by this wondrous new world): “I’ve never seen those pictures.”
Niece: “Not for everybody, just me.”
Me (floating back to earth) “Ahh…”
Niece: “He knows I love squirrels.”
Me: “I get it.”
I don’t know if Jesus would buy my book, but if you believe in him, cover your bases just in case by buying
