It is so hard to talk to your children about God and then it’s even harder to talk them about other people and why they believe in God differently and why they practice a religion differently. It sort of multiplies the problem. And I love the name of kids in the house, because I think house is the best metaphor. In a house, you’ve got a front door, a back door, a side door, a doggy door – you have all these doors that lead into the central place, usually the kitchen – that’s where it was for me. But no matter what door you come in, you always arrive at the same place. So that’s what I tell my children – people practice religions, they think about God differently, but we’re all ending up in the kitchen. We’re just coming through different doors.
