Pentecost 9B, 2018: Children's sermon on being apostles today

We, at St. David's, dedicate the sermon on the fourth Sunday of each month to the children. This week we discussed what it means to be an apostle sent by Jesus into the world and why Jesus sends us. We discuss Jesus' mother, Mary, as "theotokos" (God bearer) and how we are theotokos, God bearers today. We find our apostleship grounded in our Baptism, and our preparation for it marked by our Confirmation.

Lectionary: 2 Samuel 7:1-14a; Psalm 89:20-37; Ephesians 2:11-22; Mark 6:30-34, 53-56

There is no written text for this sermon as it is a conversation with the children. The icon of Mary as theotokos we discussed is pictured here. It was written by me and it is called "The First Communion"© (please seek permission to reproduce this image)
