Wait A Minute

Ezra gave permission for this to be posted:

Dear Pat (Canavan),

Last week Ezra and I were doing some errands around town and he was asking questions about the size of the earth and the nature of the sun, countries, cities, etc. After awhile, I overheard one of his typical 6-year-old narratives from the back seat (loosely) as follows: "So if God has one foot on America, then the other foot is at the north pole. No, if one foot is covering the sunny side, then the other is on the moon side. Or if both feet are on this side then... WAIT A MINUTE, what am I thinking? God is a spirit and does not have a body like a man!" (the last part verbatim)

Thanks for guiding my son,
Andrew Crow
