Wednesday a guy had asked me if I could do the children's sermon "next Sunday". What is wrong with me?! How could I forget a thing like that?! Why didn't I write it down or something? I started frantically trying to come up with a talk for the kids and I quickly developed a plan, kind of. Not to worry! My husband got up and he had the whole thing under control. Apparently he had just planned to do it since I'd been sick this last week. He didn't even know I'd thought I was doing it. Whew!
Anyway, Mike had a title for his children's sermon. It was, "A Gentle Donkey Kind of King". He spoke of the type of person people would expect a King to be. I thought of all the hoopla surrounding the upcoming royal wedding in England! Or what about the fuss made when our President arrives anywhere on Airforce One? What a contrast to Jesus, riding a gentle donkey into Jerusaelm, even as he is being welcomed like a King.
