Last Sunday, I asked the children and the congregation to share where they see God in our everyday lives. This was in preparation of my plans to share with our children a story each Sunday in February from a beloved book titled, “God Got a Dog”, by Cynthia Rylant. The book is made up of small vignettes where God appears as the most unlikely people of all ages, occupations, ethnic groups, etc. The homeless I served used to remind me constantly of how God could show up in the most interesting people, and the most interesting ways.
“We are called to serve God’s world with energy, intelligence, imagination, joy, and love.”
