Anyway, they learned this beautiful, beautiful song based on the Hebrew shalma (Deuteronomy 6:4):
"Hear O Israel, the Lord our God is One."As Ellie was singing it one night, I pointed out, "Now that is a really Jewish idea. Christians believe in the Trinity--Father, Son, and Holy Ghost who act as one. Jews and Muslims like to claim that Christians worship three gods. We don't read that text in the same way Jews do."
Ellie thought about that for a minute. Then she started singing: "Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is Three."
