Now I lay me down to sleep

Dan was saying prayers with John this evening and this is what I overheard:

John: Where is God?
Daniel: God is everywhere. But sometimes it helps to think of Him as being up in the sky, watching over us.
John: You wanna catch God? You wanna get God?
Daniel: You can receive God when you go to communion, John.
John: He’s behind the stars?
Daniel: He’s in heaven
John: God is gone.
Daniel: No, God is always with us, even when we can’t see Him.
John: Where’s God Daddy?
Daniel: God is everywhere, even inside of you.
John: You wanna get God?
Daniel: We can talk to God and be near Him when we pray.

John repeated many of his questions again and Dan explained things a few different ways. It was so very sweet and I wonder if we have a junior theologian on our hands.
