Beyond Imagination!

Sermon on Ephesians 3:14-21 for 2nd Sunday after Epiphany, January 20, 2019   A concern among child psychologists and probably teachers, and maybe parents today is that children aren’t allowed or forced to use their IMAGINATIONS.  They don’t seem to read like children used to.  They don’t seem to be shooed outside by Mom and…
