(Thank you Barbara for giving me a title to this post)
I am not the most religious person, but Abigail has questions about God and since it is easier then sitting through a Catholic Mass with a 3 year old, she goes to Awanas every week. Well this past week she has been attending Vacation Bible School (girl scout camp about Jesus) where the theme was "roundin' up questions ...drivin' home answers" And Abigail had a question.
Monday night, at dinner, Abigail wanted to know "If God made everything, than who made God?" And like every good Mama, I replied,"Let's ask your teacher tomorrow." After a day full of questions I just did not want to have that conversation with a three year old. The next morning, she asked the director, who told her to ask her teacher...and on and on and on...Until this morning. It is Friday and she still did not get an answer. So...
They were having their end of the week Rally and the Pastor said to the kids well I hope I have answered all your questions. And apparently Abigail's hand shot straight up and because she is three, and little and cute he called her up to the alter. He then invited her to share her question they had not answered. So in front of all the teachers and all the kids she asked her question " If God Made everything, then who made God?" and the Pastor was silent for a moment, before he answered.
The answer he finally gave was not relayed to me, but Abigail definitely made an impression on him.
But this is Abigail. She is constantly on the lookout for false logic. Just because it not an acceptable answer to her. UnI hear at least 10 times a day "But Mommy your wrong" or "I think this is a better way" Unless it makes sense in her heaed she does not have faith in what people say unless she has examined it and proved it to be true.
