Sermon: Teach Your Children Well

“Teach Your Children Well”

(October 17, 2010) Jeremiah announces a new way of relating to God: each person will be responsible for his or her own sin, so that no longer will the “sins of parents be visited upon their children.” And yet, in many ways, children still bear the burdens passed to them by their parents and by the culture around them, burdens of prejudice and judgment that harm them and their peers. We must teach our children to love, and model healthy relationships for them. (Jeremiah 31:27-34, Matthew 18:1-7)

This sermon is my reflection for Children Sabbath 2010, and is based on an earlier blog post by me, and a sermon (and guest blog post) by Rev. Bri Desotell, quoted with permission.
