The 9 yr Old is an Arian (oh no!)

Walking the 9 year old through the catechism. We got caught on a discussion about God.

Me: God promises salvation
Daughter: Where
Me: Jesus says so right here
Daughter: But that is Jesus not God
Me: Jesus is true God – we say it weekly in the creed
Daughter: But he’s a man, that doesn’t make sense
Me: That is what Christmas is about.
Daughter: How can there be two things that are both God
Me: There aren’t two things, there are three persons in one God called the Trinity
Daughter: That’s confusing
Me: That the mystery of the Trinity
Daughter: But Jesus born, how can he be God.
Me: Heretic! – My daughter’s an Arian; of all things an Arian
Daughter: Grrr!
Me: Will you trust me (and the creed for now)?
Daughter: Well, ok.

Zombie Sightings

I saw this on one of those quirky Lutheran blogs

Wife and daughter were canning about a month ago. I got sucked in with the pealing and slicing of a bunch of pears from Dr. Warriner’s personal orchard. The Walking Dead is coming back soon and I’ve professed my love for the Zombie genre. I couldn’t stopping smirking at it. Just one of those things.
