K, today my lesson for my gr. 6 class was on King Josiah and how he remodeled the temple and restored its worship. So, I’m nearing the end of my lesson when suddenly, a girl raises her hand and tells me she is going to ask an off-the-topic question. I’m thinking, ok, how hard can her question be?? She then asks: We know God created all of mankind, but who created God? I was pretty struck at first….then I slowly began answering her question to the best of my abilities and to the best of my knowledge…I said, our minds compared to God are limited and inadequate. I told them we can’t comprehend God’s knowledge because frankly, our minds don’t have the capability to understand anything beyond our human mind’s limitations. I remembered an example Fr. Boulus once said and I used it…his example was: look at any train. It has several carts attached to each other. One cart has the power to pull the one behind it, and the one before that one pulls another cart, and that cart pulls another one and so forth. But look at the first cart! There is nothing in front of it, yet it is able to move without anything pulling it! How is that?! Well, there must have been a driving force or some kind of special power that sets it apart from the other carts and allows it move on its own. So yea I used that example but had I been more prepared for the question, I think I would’ve wanted to give them a more clear explanation. So if a child or anyone asked you this question, what /how would you guys answer them??
