Scripture: Psalm 1; Mark 9:30-37

In today’s reading the disciples are arguing over which of them is the greatest – which of them is most important, which will be considered most powerful.  Jesus tells them that, in order to be great, they must become servants, and that they welcome him whenever they welcome a child among them.  Today we are celebrating the ways God comes to us – and challenges us – through children – and talking about what it means that Jesus highlights children as the pinnacle of faith.
