Kids, even very young ones, pick up non-verbal signals. They may not understand those signals yet. They are pieces of a puzzle that they will assemble over many years.

Something in your body posture, a slightly furrowed brow or a quizzically raised eyebrow at the mention of religion or the expounding of a preposterous belief... or a wink at the grand-kids when they look around the table while the grown-ups have their heads bowed while saying grace.

You never know.

That's what I do. And you know what, the kids ain't praying, they're looking around the table to see what the adults are doing. ... I always give 'em a wink and a nod. Big Grin

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
