Great sermon! My kitty, Elle, was a bit offended at first but as I was watching and listening she was attacking my hand and drew blood ,so she realized you were right about the dog v cat debate... hehehe. Truly though, a great message in these times when we have to speak up and risk upsetting social norms. Blessings!
Haha! I love both cats and dogs and have had both throughout my life, but it's so much more fun to joke about cat-ittude. ;-) Actually, it was my cat Franc (named after St. Francis, the saint day on which he was rescued) that prompted my co-founding of an animal ministry in Ohio years ago. He was my cuddliest friend of all time. So thank you kitty Elle for your understanding! And thank you Julie.
When you bring us Jesus' teaching and words to us in our own experience (parenthood), M. Rebecca, we can understand in a whole new way. Thank you!
