Aila has a bit of confusion regarding Jesus' death on the cross.

We're not sure why...but for some reason, Aila thinks that every time it rains, Jesus is dying on the cross.

Maybe she is more profoundly theological than you imagine. If we take John's claim that Jesus is the lamb slain before the foundation of the world (Rev 13:8) then perhaps the cross is an event outside of time. Just as through the sacraments we are made present to (as the events are presented to us) the reality of God's saving work, which is why we partake in the memory with physical elements, perhaps the rain mediates that reality for your daughter.

This also fits as a correlation between judgment (flood narrative; John's theology of the cross). I'd encourage a resurrection connection with the ending of a rainstorm (flood narrative; theology of promise and hope).

And of course I know a great school where she can hone these budding theological skills. :-)
