Last week, for our online children's sermon, I read a book called The Invisible String. It's written by Patrice Karst.
"'The Invisible String' is a simple story that reminds children, and adults, that they are never truly alone. The mother in the story explains "People who love each other are always connected by a very special String made of love. Even though you can't see it with your eyes, you can feel it deep in your heart and know that you are always connected to the ones you love". This is a really compelling message in today's uncertain times. It's hard to know how to reassure children. This book uses the transcendent power of love to bind, connect, and comfort."
Below is the video instead of an article. As I read to my cell phone, with Dylan behind the camera, I pretended that I was reading to all of the kids, and of course, the adults at St. Paul's as well. We are all connected by love. So the next time you feel a "tug" on your Invisible Strings, know that someone you love is thinking of you....perhaps a friend, family member, or child you are close to....or perhaps, that God himself is tugging on your Invisible String. After all, God IS Love. I wonder....if it is God's love that created those Invisible Strings in the first place.
