Cue the Baltimore Catechism! Actually, we thought it out a little with the older kids: "Well, what do we say God is? God is . . . "
"Uh huh, but we also say that God is . . . "
"King of the Universe!"
"Yeah, but also God is . . . "
Well after a few tries, we finally basically gave it to them: God is love.
"So what does it mean if God is love? What has to happen so God can be love?"
A light comes on for B: "The love has to have something to go into."
High fives. So we played that out for a while longer. One of those rare moments when it all gels.
