An excerpt from a conversation held today with my daughter, H, who is 7:
TS: What did you learn about in school today?
H7: The story of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
TS: Did they tell you about what happened, or also why it happened?
TS: So what did the teacher say about why Jesus died?
H7: That He died so that we could go to heaven.
TS: And why did Jesus have to die so that we could go to heaven?
H7: There was none other good enough / to pay the price of sin. / He only could unlock the gate of heaven / and let us in.
Three cheers to good children’s hymns.
P.S. This is a state primary school. Three cheers for some schools not being too PC to tell it how it is!
