Great Eskimo line. I love it. I wish you all a great meeting. I'll miss meeting you all ,not to mention the guacamoli and the hummus.    I was also wondering who has kids, how old and how have you raised them as far as what to believe and what to think about religion? I have a 6 year old son, who is starting 1st grade next month (frazzle) and I don't quite know what to tell him. I would like him to decide fo himself when he gets older but questions are starting to come up. So far I have just said that some people believe...ect. I would appreciate some advice or opinions.  W'ere off to Virginia for a little vacation.   Hope to see you next month.  Sylvie

I've had the following on my fridge for 20 years or so (time to reprint it as it's a bit yellowed now). Anyway, has anyone seen it before and know where it came from? Is there an attribution for it? I imagine if I had one at the time I would have put it on the print out I made for my fridge but then, it was a long time ago so maybe I just didn't.
I just love this too-so telling. It makes the telling about the concept of God something with malicious intent in the Eskimo's mind
Here it is:
The Eskimo's Question
The Eskimo hunter asked the local missionary priest, "If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?"
"No" said the priest, "not if you did not know."
"Then why," asked the Eskimo earnestly, "did you tell me?"
