WHERE DOES GOD FIT IN?


One Christmas season a schoolteacher in England supervised the construction of a manger scene in a corner of her classroom. Her pupils were delighted to set up the model barn and cover the floor with real straw and then arrange the clay figures of Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, the Wise Men, and the animals -- all facing a little crib in which a tiny doll represented the infant Jesus.


One boy simply could not tear himself away from it. He kept returning to it, and each time he stood there completely engrossed and wearing a puzzled expression on his face. The teacher finally asked him, "Is anything bothering you? Do you have a question to ask? What would you like to know?"


With his eyes still glued to the manger scene, the boy said slowly, "What I'd like to know is, where does God fit in?"
