Preschooler Theology, Part I

Sitting with Ben this morning, who isn’t feeling well. So we were reading out of the Psalms, 118:19-24, and talking about the events of Holy Week. In trying to explain about the imagery of the “gates of justice” and “God’s own gates,” I asked, “Sometimes we go to visit God–where do we go to visit God? At church?” and he says, “Yes.” Then he paused. “And sometimes if we are sick or not feeling well, God comes to visit us!”

For an almost-4-year-old, Ben has a pretty good grip on the Biblical story and character of God, I think.
