Baby Fitz said something that made me laugh today. He goes to a Christian School where they obviously do a lot of religious instruction. He asked me, "Mumma, is Jesus like the Loch Ness Monster?"...... "Um, I'm not sure what you mean" I say. My mind was racing trying to find the link.... He says "Well, I think he is, because some people believe in him and some people don't". I think this is a very good analogy for a 6 year old. Then he says "I mean really, a guy who lives in the sky... come on!"
Okay, what on earth can I say to that, I was still back at the part where my child was comparing Jesus to the Loch Ness Monster? (You should know that I am not religious at all in any way shape or form). I think I said something about it being really wonderful that people can have differing views and make up their own minds about things like Jesus. I am wondering, however, what the answer will be if he asks one of his teachers this question. Oh to be a fly on the wall...... very interesting.
