As we celebrate Mother’s Day and Confirmation Sunday, we look at the followers of Christ know as Children of God.  This is the time of the year when families gather, and we often hear, ‘you look just like your mother (or father.)’ Sometimes people might wonder where Jesus got his qualities.  And in fact, he got his qualities in the same way we did – from his parents.  How did Jesus start being ‘like God?’ In the beginning, there was the Word, and everything that went into God went into Jesus.  God dwells in him, and also in us, so we should nurture ourselves, as well as others, as children of God.

Based on Psalm 67 and John 14:18-31.
