Just in time for the season. And since it is the boys in our house that like them appropriate that it comes from The Art of Manliness. Of course we know that is just because it takes boys to loves squishing the pumpkin guts!
Walking the 9 year old through the catechism. We got caught on a discussion about God.
Me: God promises salvation
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
Me: Will you trust me (and the creed for now)?
Daughter: Well, ok.

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.
