The occasion of Elsa Hayden’s baptism, Psalm 8, Genesis 2, and Jesus’s words in Mark 10 about divorce, and welcoming children come together in this homily that makes the  claim that our God desires for humans to be in community. Why? Because God is in need of companionship and “stewards of creation.” Jesus’s words challenge and demonstrate that relationships are not to be taken for granted, and that the vulnerable like children have a priority.

A God Who Is Mindful of Us
