out of the lips of babes...

Hi friends,
Sorry I didn't get a reading out yesterday; fortunately our reading for tomorrow and Sunday provide a different version of the one we missed. Remember our UPT prayer vigil at the school district at 8 on Sunday morning. Also, there is a youth worship service at the Brockport Presbyterian Church on Sunday from 3-6, that should be a great time for youth and others. Today's reading shows us Jesus getting into trouble with the religious leaders. Even when the powerful and the smart folks don't understand, sometimes the young and outcast do. What might that have to teach us today?

God bless,

Matthew 21:12-17
12Then Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who were selling and buying in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. 13He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer’; but you are making it a den of robbers.” 14The blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he cured them. 15But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the amazing things that he did, and heard the children crying out in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they became angry 16and said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read, ‘Out of the mouths of infants and nursing babies you have prepared praise for yourself’?” 17He left them, went out of the city to Bethany, and spent the night there.
