Letting go of “God” for the sake of God.

The gospel reading this morning was from the tenth chapter of Mark where Jesus has an encounter with a rich young man. During Sunday School the teachers had the children make/draw the thing/person that they loved the most. Then when they came up for the Eucharist they would kneel down at the altar and exchange their most precious item for the body and blood of our Lord. A symbolic forsaking of what they love to follow Christ.

One little girl drew a picture of her mom. A boy gave a piece of Lego.

Then one young boy placed in my hand a Lego figure he had made and taped to the figure’s chest was the word “God”.
