“Reincarnation is an idea that when a living animal dies, it returns as another living animal.”

My youngest child said immediately, “I believe that. Before you said it, I believed that.”

My eldest: “I don’t get it. If you’re wiped completely clean, and start out new, how does it matter if anything happened before? What’s the difference?”

When I was a child, I thought of an American native, hundreds of years ago, standing in the night sounds toward the moon, heart wide open, pleading with his Great Spirit to understand this big joy in his soul, and receiving the same life that Jesus offered to me.
