In this week's reading, we are reminded that Jesus said "let the children come to me." Rebecca Morris of the United Methodist Children's Home shares her thoughts on bringing children to Jesus. And not just our own children...but all the children in our lives.
Well readers, this week we are at the end of the Old Testament. Do you feel a sense of accomplishment about that? Rev. Judy Shepherd points out that while we have completed something, we also need to be aware of starting something new.
This week's Scripture includes a story of God's call in one book, and instructions for responding to God's call in another. Deaconess Judy Poole ties those together and shares some insights about responding to the sometimes difficult call to serve.
