Lesson from the jack-o’-lantern
Just prior to Halloween, David Epps, pastor of Christ the King Church and Bishop of the Diocese of the Mid-South, shared a children’s sermon about “How you are like a jack o’ lantern.” Epps related that the pumpkin was chosen, washed clean, opened up, experienced the removal of the “yucky stuff inside,” was given new eyes to “see the world as God sees it,” given a nose to “smell the good things in life,” a smile put on its face, and a light placed inside of it. Epps encouraged the children to “Remember every time you see a jack o’ lantern, that it is a reminder that God loves you and does wonderful things in you!” The church is located on Ga. Hwy. 34 in Sharpsburg. Photo/Special.
