Ari's concept of Jesus

this blog is brought to you from another time, another place...

june 19th 2006
bakersfield, ca

We were about to leave the house to go for dinner tonight and Ari (age age 3.5) spoke with a great amount of concern..."We have to wait for Jesus, Mom!" he said. I paused to reflect on what an amazingly spiritual boy I was raising and before I got even more proud of myself he added..."He has to get his purse."

I wonder what goes on in little minds especially as it relates to the supernatural. To Ari Jesus is fully a person. He knows He is God, but doesn't really grasp what that means. How do I explain the hypostatic union to my three-year-old? Even harder, how do I explain that Jesus probably doesn't carry a purse?
