Love You Forever

July 1, 2019

Yesterday we began our summer series using children’s books as a "life text" with biblical texts to look at the connections between them.

 

We began with a book that sold 15 million copies - I'll Love You Forever by Robert Munsch.

What I love is the “why“ he wrote it.
It was out of his own sorrow after losing children through miscarriage and still-birth. He inspires us to imagine such a parent - such a God.

He invites the question, “How do we use our grief for good? Can we?”

I paralleled Mary’s story as a parent with the book. 
It wrote itself.
I slept last night.
Of course, it could be better - but a story is a story after all - write your own.

- John 

PS some people find the image of a mother climbing a ladder into the room of her sleeping child as creepy - I say whatever!? It’s a story. :)
