Great Doctrinal Import

We are trying to teach Johnny the children's catechism. We've been working on "Who Made You?" for the last two plus years, so you can imagine the hope we have of a future snowball effect--you know, once we get question one down, perhaps the others will just pick up speed. . .

It's mainly getting the form of the answer right, as well as the concept. Tonight, however, Johnny was on a roll. He was sitting on the changing table and said, "God made trees!"

"Good!" I replied, "What else did God make?"

"God made swimming pool!"

"Yes, God made the swimming pool." Let's try another one, I thought to myself.

"Johnny, where is God?" Johnny peered behind the shower curtain and said, "God hiding!"

"No, Johnny, God is not hiding; God is everywhere!"

He thought for a moment and said, "God hiding something."

There ya go.
