Toddler Theology

We're a Christian family, which means -among other things- we talk about our faith with our children. J's too young to grasp many of the concepts, but he has learned some of the lingo. It makes for some interesting conversation. Here's a sampling:

J: (Looking at picture of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane) "What's Jesus doing?"
Me: He's praying.
J: But he doesn't have his eyes closed...Silly Jesus!
Me: Somehow I don't think He needed as much help concentrating as you do.

J: We need to get another fish sometime 'cause my other fish died, on a cross.

J: Jesus takes away our teeth.
Me: Don't you mean our sins?
J: No, that'd be silly.

Deuteronomy 6:5-7 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

We're trying!
