Let the children come to me
Carl Vogel von Vogelstein, 1805

15 People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 17 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”

Luke 18:15-17

36 He took a little child whom he placed among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them,37 “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.”

Mark 9:36-38

Go forth and “Scatter Joy” (Ralph Waldo Emerson) by doing a random act of kindness today and through out the coming year in quiet remembrance of the 20 children and 6 educators of Sandy Hook Elementary School.
