I wanted to share a special link with you today to a church service I participated in earlier this month. I know it will be a blessing!
On March 3rd, I was invited by Central Presbyterian Church in Summit to read LOVE IS KIND (Zonderkidz, 2018) for the children’s message at their Sunday evening contemporary Wave Service. I was asked because my dear friend, Pastor Noelle Kirchner, was preaching a special sermon where she shared her moving testimony of her grandmother’s miraculous healing from cancer and the beautiful role that played in Noelle’s faith journey.
As a prelude to her sermon, she asked me if I’d share LOVE IS KIND with the children, and by extension with all the adults, too, who were seated coffee house style on sofas and at cafe tables all around the room. She asked me because in addition to being a story about spreading love and kindness, LOVE IS KIND also celebrates the special bond between grandparent and child. Indeed, just as Noelle’s relationship with her grandmother shaped her faith journey, Little Owl’s special relationship with his grammy helped him to see his day through new eyes.
If you have time, or just want to be blessed by a good message, I hope you’ll grab a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy Noelle’s message. (You’ll get to hear me read LOVE IS KIND too!)
P.S. Noelle also has an amazing blog where she reflects on faith and family. Here’s the link if you want to check it out: http://www.noellekirchner.com
