Day #663

October 25, 2015

Reformation Worship! A big day celebrated in a big way!

What’s so big about Reformation? Perhaps it’s simply the excuse to hear, really hear with joy and celebration, once again, that God loves us!

The Children’s Message included a red balloon - tied to the communion rail. I asked what it meant to be free. There were some great answers. Then I asked if the balloon was free. Nope, it’s tied. Well, if I untie it and hold it, is it free. Nope, it's still held back. Well, what if I let it go? And as they watched the balloon ascend all the way to the ceiling…
I said, Jesus loves us, sets us free, to love others.

And no ceiling can stop that!!
