I have a new post on her.meneutics. It begins:
I don’t know how to explain Easter to my children — Penny, 5, and William, 2. I’ve tried two approaches so far. I’ve talked about it directly: “Some people killed Jesus and he died and God made him alive again.”
When I said that, William asked, “What does died mean?” I tried to explain death as something that takes people away forever. Penny asked, “Where is Jesus now?” and when I said, “Jesus is in heaven and all around us,” she responded, “But where is Jesus now?”
I asked Penny later, “What happened in Sunday school? Did you learn something about Jesus?”
Without looking at me she said, “He died. I needed to see you, Mom.”
