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?

H7: Both.

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!
