Jesus and the Loch Ness Monster

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.


  1. Haha, you just tell him he has to have faith, I've got great faith the Loch Ness Monster exists....from there on, everything else is easy.

  2. I really like that you have a blog label "Jesus and Loch Ness", I'm looking forward to reading more entries in this category ;)

    I've found some real gems at Spotlight recently too, modern and stylish and yes, cheap. Lovely to meet you in person today, and thanks for the loan of the pattern!
