  1. I’m so glad I came upon this post! I’m taking it one step further (our pastor frequently goes off-Lectionary, but I don’t get the Scriptures from him until Saturday, which makes coming up with the weekly Children’s sermon a challenge!) this week, since the Scripture he is using is actually Matthew 5:43-48 (his recent series, in light of all of the ugliness surrounding our Presidential candidates, has been on tolerance and acceptance, and approaching your neighbors with love…), about loving your enemies. So, sure, the kids have heard about the loving neighbors for years. But taking it with some of the items you described, above, and also applying it to folks who are different from you, or to folks you don’t even like? That’ll be a new one for them, I’m quite sure! Thanks for the inspiration!!
