Henry's Catechism


"Everything is a machine. Humans are machines that God made. They are made out of organs and meat."


"I know what is wrong with Luke," (Luke is in his room screaming.) "God made Luke good, but Luke is choosing to be bad right now."


"I love nature! God made nature! It smells so good."



"God is everywhere! I'm walking through God right now! Isn't that weird?"

Oh, Henry!

Love it! He reminds me of my Max (just turned 9) but he talks about God a lot right now and trying to figure it all out.

I love that picture! He is too cool for school! Look out Justin Beiber, Henry is the new heartbreaker!

He's right, it IS so weird. Does Luke talk about God like this? I wonder what makes some of us tune into the religious and others of us not?

And love the picture. Did he make his teeshirt as a good hip hopper should?

Regarding the picture, this is what Henry wore for three weeks everywhere (minus the hat for church and school.) This is his shirt that his breakdancing teacher made for their performance last term. I'm not sure if you can see the chain around his wrist or the chain from his wallet to his belt hole. I tried to ignore it, and it went away, thank goodness. He's such a goof. He was trying to imitate Luke, I think, but went a little extreme.

I would say that Henry is a natural believer and Luke is a natural skeptic. Luke did used to talk about these sorts of things when he was Henry's age, but it was a little different (like he used to obsess about whether or not skeletons could take toys with them up to heaven--very strange) and now Luke is going through a "God is a myth!" phase. It makes me sad, but I try to just kind of listen and be mellow about it.

If I sent a copy of the 1984 version of "Breakin'" to Luke and Henry would that just aggravate the problem? Or help them realize that they are way behind in the times?

Mara, they have seen it! And Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo. Twice.
