Children's Sermon for Proper 9 | OT 14
Telling About Jesus | Mark 6:1-13
Object: Your most favorite video

The Point: Tell others about what has brought great joy to your life.

The Lesson:  Girls and boys, it brings me joy to be able to share this time with you.  Thank you for joining me.

This is my most favorite video. (Briefly tell the video story and why it is special to you.)  It is a musical about a man who sinned by stealing something.  After he was released from jail, he stole again but this time a pastor forgave him and saved him from jail.  The action of grace, the pastor's forgiveness, turned his life around.  He became a man of love and compassion helping many people.  I love the music but I especially love the story of what God's love can do in someone's heart.  I tell everyone about this video because it has been an encouragement to me.  Sometimes people like it as much as me and sometimes they don't.  I still tell others about this wonderful movie.... click here for the rest of the children's sermon
