Family Service Sermon, The Rev. Michael A. Bird: "Giving Away What’s Precious"

October 10, 2021

Giving away our prized possessions, whether it be material things or our time and love can be an overwhelming ask. Today we hear the story of a man who knelt before Jesus asking what he needed to do to inherit eternal life and “Jesus says a very difficult thing to the man,” preaches Father Michael. “Jesus told him that he had to take all that he had and give it to the poor. And that was a bit much. He had to go away and let it work in his heart.” Watch Father Michael’s family-friendly reflection where he shares a personal anecdote about his children, a beloved blanket, and how even small acts of sharing have huge impact.
