Summary: A teacher of the law approaches Jesus and asks him which law is the most important one to follow. Jesus answers by saying we must love the Lord with everything we have, and love our neighbors as ourselves. This teaching is illustrated by the widow who gave two tiny coins to the temple. It didn't seem like much, but it was everything she had.
- What would it be like to be in the widow's shoes? Could you give everything, like she did?
- What are some ways you can love God this week...
- with all your heart?
- with all your soul?
- with your mind?
- with all your strength?
- What are some ways you can love your neighbor as yourself?
- A member of our congregation's nephew is serving overseas as part of the National Guard (pictured below). His platoon loves receiving mail! Color a picture or write a letter and mail it to Glen Cary for us to send to him :)
- Think of a loved one (grandparent, friend, etc.) who is stuck inside this week. Call them to see how they are doing!
- Although we can't physically collect an offering, you may mail in a check or give online here.

Son Salutation Poem by CJ Dates
The Son, the Son
I salute the Son.
The Son of God
lives in everyone.
Christ has risen,
Christ has blessed.
The whole world
in His heart rests.
With Christ I rise,
ready to live,
happy to be,
and ready to give.
The Son, the Son,
I salute the Son.
Christ opens his arms
Go in peace, and serve the Lord! Thanks be to God!
