The past few days have seen P and I doing homework when I get home from the office. It was generally the “easy” stuff—reading, language, chinese.
Then today, I was reading his homework notebook and for the first time, he had a CLE (it’s Christian Life Education, for those who don’t know) assignment. Seemed pretty easy enough—go for a stroll with your Dad and Mom, look at the wonderful things God had made and then draw it on a paper plate and put some decors on it.
I figured, easy peasy. So I asked P if he wanted me or his Dad to help him out for this one. He’s a very diplomatic child, he said, “both”.
THEN he asks me the hard questions: How did God make the world? How can he do it alone if He’s a person? But He *is* a person, isn’t He?
Oooookay…I quickly sent S a message on his mobile: You’re in charge of P’s homework this weekend.
I tried as much to concretize God to P but I can’t. Pointers, anyone? Please?
