That guy

We were in the car the other day and had the following conversation:

Carter: Mommy, who's that guy at church?
Me: What guy? The priest?
Carter: The priest? Hmm. Maybe.
Me: Or do you mean the man at shul?  The rabbi?
Carter:  Oh, I know!  It's God.

A minute later...

Carter:  Where is God?
Me: He's everywhere but He lives above the clouds.
Carter:  (looking out the car window) I don't see any houses up there!

And that was our theological conversation for the day.

I keep laughing picturing him looking out the window at the sky.

It just so happens the publishing house I work for has a book called Where Does God Live. It was written by a priest and a rabbi/ Here's the link if you are interested.
