Youth Sunday: “Marked by LOVE!”

April 24, 2016 was Youth Sunday at St. Matthew’s, where the youth led all aspects of the service, including helping to give the sermon, being readers, ushers, Eucharistic Ministers, musicians, choir members, and greeters.  Because the sermon was about how we are no longer marked as believers by the Old Testament Law, but instead we are known as Jesus’s disciples by our love, the youth gave parishioners reminders that they are “marked by love” by painting crosses (the ultimate sign of love) on parishioners’ foreheads.  These vibrant crosses served as an outward and visible sign that we are marked by love, a reminder that we are to be known to a broken and hurting world, by how well we LOVE those around us!
