Rev. Rachel Helgeson will be leading our worship service Sunday.
Message title: “Let the Little Children Come to Me!”
Scripture: Ps 103:1-5 & Matt 19:13-15
What is the kingdom of heaven like? This is a question that the gospel of Matthew has been asking us in parables. And this week Jesus reminds us that the kingdom of heaven will belong to such as these, the children. Who are the children in our midst? They are the children who recently have been baptized in our church. They are the children who attend Sunday School and then play in the church office. They are the children who show up at the children’s message squirming and anxiously waiting to hear what the message is that day for them. They are also the children in our community seeking shelter, seeking an education, and seeking advocates. Perhaps we need to be reminded of these children. Our children. Let me challenge you this week to see the children in our midst for who they are, children of God.
