Family Service Sermon, The Rev. Sister Promise Atelon, "Children and God’s Mysteries"

July 9, 2023

"You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants." - Matthew 11:25

In this morning's 9am homily, the Rev. Sr. Promise Atelon recalls a time when God revealed himself to her through a three-year-old child.

"To my surprise he said, 'I want to pray for people I know and people I do not know.' Three years old—think of such a prayer!"

May we learn from him and pray not only for ourselves but also for people we do not know.

The readings are Genesis 24:34-67 and Matthew 11:16–19, 25–30. Watch the video.
