I was so lucky. Tonight. And I’m talking an innocent type of luck.
I got to go to dinner with my oldest son. Just him and I.
It was wonderful.
As we were driving home we were discussing religious school.
He hates it. So did I. But I had to go all the way through my senior year in high school. And so will he.
He asked me, though, such an amazingly deep question. Regarding religion. And…I had NO CLUE how to answer him.
Maybe one of you…my way smarter than me…friends.
He wanted to know why. Back in the biblical days. There were so many prophets who had a direct line to God. They were all in constant communication.
So why is it that there really are no more prophets. Does God not find anyone worthy anymore?
Yeah…he asked me all that. I just looked at him. I might have made a bawking sound…like air was escaping my mouth but no words were flowing.
I told him we should call my Dad.
He didn’t really know.
So…I sent a message through facebook to one of the Rabbis at my temple. But…I’m curious what my little friends out there have to say…
My son is waiting. He’s really curious. And he’s looking forward to your answers!!
