The Mysteries of the Godhead not explained in the slightest

April 12, 2013

The late, great Mrs Thatcher said that when you start calling the other side names, you’ve lost the argument.   Similarly, I suggest that when you start describing the wonders and mysteries of God through the medium of Pixar films, it may well be said that you’ve wandered ever so slightly into a mine field of epic proportions.

Little H couldn’t sleep last night and said that he was scared.  I blame his bedtime stories  (to summarise: The Gingerbread Man runs away from home, gets eaten by fox; Pinocchio runs away from home, gets eaten by whale. We’re sticking to Winnie the Pooh in the future).  We pointed out that he was surrounded by 3 elephants, a dinosaur and Scooby Doo, but it didn’t help.  Then we said that he shouldn’t be scared as Jesus was there looking after him.  The conversation then followed:

H: Where’s Jesus?  I can’t see him.

A: He’s here, all around us.

H: Where?

A: You can’t see him because he’s invisible.

H: What’s ‘veezable’?

A: It means you can’t see them, but they’re there.

H: Eh?

A: Well, you know Randal* in Monsters Inc……

If our children grow up with any faith in Christ at all, it will be despite their parents’ best efforts.  Godparents – over to you.

 *Randal is the scary monster in Monsters Inc who turns invisible at times.  Not at all like Jesus, Saviour of The World.
