What children say at times like this
Yesterday my son asked me:
"Who invented dying?"
He is very interested in the difference between nature and God--and whether there is a difference, and if there is a God, what form he/she/it might take.
"I suppose nature invented dying," I answered, with all the authority of someone increasingly at a loss to explain anything.
"Well, I don't really like it that nature did that," he said.
And we all knew just what he meant.
