Hello! Today church was at the Franklin’s, Simeon read the kids story and also preached the sermon.
The story – this week we read about Mary and Joseph taking newborn baby Jesus to the temple.
For the sermon we read Mark 15:15-47 (end of chapter)
Some things we talked about:
- The many ironies in the story: Jesus’ crown, title, and royal robe
- The meaning of crucifixion – torture, shame, spectacle.
- The cross changed form a symbol of death to life
