Welcome the Children

Season after Pentecost, Ordinary Time, Proper 20, Year B
Scripture: Mark 9:30-37

As Jesus prepares his disciples for what is to come, they not only do not “get it,” they begin to jockey for position. Jesus is succinct: whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all. He takes a small child gently in his arms and tells his disciples that as you welcome this child, you welcome not only me – but the one who sent me.
