To close, I wanted to offer you a piece of this week’s lectionary that I found particularly meaningful.

13People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them. – Mark 10: 13-16

As always, Let me know if you have any questions.

Hope to see you soon!
