My favourite bible stories for children involve Abraham and Sarah. It was always fun to prepare using the Young Children and Worship materials and the children always enjoyed them…almost as much as I did.
From the scripture reading the following words immediately came to mind, following on Sydney’s time with the children: look, wait, reach. Abraham offered hospitality with no strings attached. He doesn’t know who is coming toward their tent but he serves and blesses them.I think of the hospitality offered by St. Andreans - Wednesday Communion, Open Doors, Theology on Tap. Perhaps we will be like the oaks of Mamre - known for their longevity and strength.
