This Children’s sermon was given August 2, 2020, during the coronavirus pandemic. I’m sharing it here in case it’s useful to someone.

Good morning, girls and boys! I’m so glad you’re here!

I brought a book to share today, one that Juli Morrow told me about and I’m so glad she did! It’s called Drawing God, and it’s written by Karen Kiefer and illustrated by Kathy De Wit.  I’m going to read it quickly today and share just a few of the pictures, but once we’re back at church in person–whenever that will be!– you can take your time and look at all the illustrations.

(Read Drawing God)

I wonder what you would draw, if I asked you to draw God. What would you pick? A valentine heart? A sun? A loaf of bread? You’ve got such good imaginations. I bet you might think up your own ideas. Maybe a shepherd? An ocean? A mom? A dad?

I hope that you’ll think about this today. Maybe you could ask your parents and brothers and sisters what they’d draw.

You could even make a drawing yourself and give it to God as a gift. I know God would love that!

Let’s pray together.

Dear God, thank you for our imaginations. Help us think about you today, God, and use our imaginations to try to picture you. We love you, God. Amen.
