“You have the words of eternal life.” (v. 68b)

Good morning girls and boys,

Welcome. It's awesome to talk to you this morning. How are you? (children respond)

I have a question for you. Does your teacher ever teach something that is hard to understand? Are you sometimes puzzled or bewildered by something your teacher said?

Have you ever wondered about hard things like what electricity is and how it works? Or gravity? Or the universe? Or algebra? (children answer)

Janice B. Scott

This is a story which tries to explain how Jesus can be the Holy One (God) and yet is regarded as God's son.

Call to Worship:

If we absorb Jesus, we live in him just as he lives in God. In our worship today, let us join together to explore what it means to absorb Jesus.


Invitation to Confession:

Jesus, sometimes we find it difficult to understand the Bible.
Lord, have mercy.
