I Have Been Redeemed of my Fire and Brimstone Past

This morning, while Jet, my seven-year-old son who has been in Sunday School nearly every Sunday since he was two, was looking at a comic in the newspaper:

Jet: Hey, dad, why are there all these flames and stuff?
Dad: Uhm... I guess that's the Devil and they're in Hell...
Jet: What the heck is Hell?

As our pastor said, rather apologetically, "The UCC has never been all that good at the sin and hell stuff."
