When my daughter stays a Saturday night at my parents' place, the deal is that she either comes home early Sunday morning, or goes to church with them. Not a situation I'm particularly keen on, but that's how it is.
When she was younger, it was pretty harmless... a bit of singing and the guy up the front talking grown up stuff, then going out to play with the other little kids. Now she's at school, that's also the Sunday School threshold.
This morning was her second indoctrination session. Trying not to make an interrogation of it, we were keen to know what nonsense they're feeding her. It turns out today they learned about talking to God, how to do it, and that when you do, you can ask God for stuff.
It seems quite fitting and appropriate that her first ever prayer was asking God to give her a wand that can do real magic
She's quite into fairies and magic right now, you see. And if you're going to talk to a super magic sky fairy...
So, we then had a bit of a casual family chat about God, and 2000 year old zombie Jesus, and Shiva, and Vishnu , and The Force, and different people having different ideas and maybe the God they talk about at Sunday School is kind of a bit like a magic fairy.
I really don't want to indoctrinate her to any belief or lack of... which is why we went 5 years without mentioning the subject... but if our hand is being forced, then it's time to broach the subject and start having the conversations.
