For Love of a Children’s Sermon

Nov 25, 2014 | god & grace | 2 comments

Of children’s sermons, I am a big fan. And those at Providence Presbyterian? Even better. Sweet Emily, who delivers them each week, has a remarkable gift for simplifying complicated biblical concepts and sharing them in a way that reaches most every heart—young and old—in our congregation.

Just this Sunday she said something that stuck, something I will carry with me as I make my way through this holiday week.

Instead of Thanksgiving, said Emily, let’s think of it like this:


How I love the sound of that.

Hi. I’m Cathy.

This is a blog about writing, creative living, and grace in the everyday. It’s my hope this little spot on the internet will be for you a place of quiet and reflection, a source for inspiration, and a reminder there’s beauty all around—we simply need to keep our hearts open to see it. Thank you for being here with me.
