From skeptic to believer

When I was a child, my mother and father sent the four of us younger children off to worship at a nearby Salvation Army church. Mom and Dad and our two older brothers would stay home while the four of us, within 30 months of one another in age, were led off to church by my sister. 

When I entered high school, my oldest brother had found religion, and I went to catechism classes at his church. While attending classes I asked many questions. One that evoked a perplexing answer was “Just how big is God, anyway?” The vicar teaching the class asked me, “Imagine the earth and a crane large enough to pick up the earth. Got the picture?” 

“Yes,” I responded.
