My husband is a self-avowed professional Church Geek, a guy whose job involves running adult faith formation programs at a large parish. Â He is always fielding complex theological questions from people who are considering becoming Catholic, or people who are already Catholic, or people who are no longer Catholic. Â After nearly ten years in this job, there are very few questions he hasn’t encountered.
Enter Small Moyer Boy. Â (I won’t say which boy, as this story has the potential to destroy all of his social capital in about ten years.) Â Last week, as Scott was driving the boys to preschool, said child suddenly asked, “Daddy, does God love everything in the world?”
“Yes, he does,” Scott answered promptly.
A moment later, Small Boy posed a follow-up question. Â â€œDoes God even love poopoo and peepee?”
As Scott himself admitted, Â a theology degree only takes you so far.
