Theology from a 6 year old

Our 6 year old, Henry, is learning from the Baltimore Catechism.  Right now our goal is with memorization of the lessons-and will continually work on understanding as he grows.  Many of the lessons he really understands quite a bit.  Even without guidance, he has gleaned the knowledge from our domestic church.  However, every once in a while, we get a peek into how his brain is working, putting together his own connections--

For example, we always refer to children as gifts from God.  From this Henry made these connections:

  • Jesus sends boy babies
  • Mary sends girl babies
  • God has a "pouch" of babies from which he sends us new children
