Some thoughts as I remember yesterday’s Mass and festivities. What a gift it was to have the Sunday school children sing the sermon hymn and to be able to preach a children’s sermon, sitting on the altar step. These are the members of the church who will carry orthodoxy to the next generation. May God continue to bring them and more to the church. I thank God for letting me be part of the celebration of our youth, Thank you to all the folks who put on a wonderful reception to wish us God’s speed in the new church, St Marks. A day full of blessings, begs the question,”How can we nurture our youth?” Lord, give them a huge heart for you. Continue to grow our hearts also.
