My daughter (age three) was listening to some kid’s CD when she suddenly asked:
How does Jesus take us to heaven? How will he get down? The sky is a long ways up! I don’t know how he gets all the way down here. He might need a really big ladder!
I muttered something about how it’s a story–heaven isn’t the sky but more like God’s goal for the world–and tried to avoid the whole subject of death. What would you have said?
