    Esther 7:1-6, 9-10; 9:20-22
    The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” In this reading from the Book of Esther, we enter the story after Mordecai has spoken his most important message to Esther about her placement in the kingdom for such a times as this, a time to protect the Jewish people.  Esther...

    Children's sermon
    John Jamison
    Object: A saltshaker, a stone, glue, salt, and a knife to scrape the stone. For the salt stone, I used a stone about the size of an apple, but you can use any size large enough to show. Many of the original ones would have been bigger. To make our salt stone, cover the stone with glue and then roll it in a pan of salt. Repeat that a few times until there is a visible coating of...

    Children's Story
    Janice B. Scott
    Praxis, the pixie who changed colour according to his feelings, was a bright and healthy pink. He looked so good and so happy with himself that everyone who saw him couldn't help smiling. The fact was, he'd been chosen for a very important job.

    There was only one other pixie who changed colour, and he was very old and had grown very wise. The wise old pixie had been...

    Mark 9:38-50

    On a cold and dark March night during my first year at Princeton as assistant dean of the chapel, I left our little home on the edge of the campus to go back to my office. I had a lot of things to accomplish and imagined that the quiet and solitude of the office would be the best place to work. As I approached our office building, Murray-Dodge Hall, I was surprised to see that it was all lit up...

    Call To Worship
    Leader: Let all who would proclaim God's word gather now for worship!
    People: For we live in a hostile world with many who would silence the Gospel.
    Leader: And thus it has always been, as Satan would keep us from God's love.
    People: But the Lord will not be defeated, and God's word will be heard.
    Leader: Then let us commit our lives to proclaiming God's...

    Note: Originally published in 2003.

    I don't know for a certainty that this story is in fact the origin of the saying, but with family roots in Texas you will understand why I was taught at a young age that it was. During the final hours of the siege of the Alamo, Colonel William B. Travis assembled the men under his command. General Santa Anna was flying the red flag of "no...
