Theology According to My Four Year Old

My three year old and four year old got into the clean laundry and decked themselves out in my t-shirts. Then they started dancing and spinning while chanting, "Alleluia."

I was mostly ignoring them, but semi-watching the dancers with amusement, when my four year old son pulled out a book and started "reading:"

"Once upon a time, St. Jesus went to the Cross. They screwed him onto it. Then he went to a bed in a garden and he never ate or drank anymore, but now people eat him and drink his blood. Amen."

Then the two went back to dancing and singing. Alleluia.

We'll work on teaching them about the evils of liturgical dance another day.

Hey, if David could dance mostly naked before the Lord... I know, don't give them any ideas.

Why is it always the clean laundry that spurs flights of imagination, rather than the worn laundry?

The best part is that they're thinking.
