Minister uses children’s books in sermons

I’m not much into organized religion, but if I was, I think I’d want to attend one of minister Susan Sharpe’s picture book sermons. Sharpe created a mini-series of sermons called “Story Book Theology;” each week’s sermon is based on a famous children’s book, and includes scripture to help apply the lessons. The books Sharpe has used include Judith Viorst’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (I just love that book) and Dr. Seuss’ Oh, The Places You’ll Go. Sharpe said: “My desire is that through using children’s books, which can relate to a child, that they can relate to the child in us.”

I get that. I think I’d enjoy listening to some of what she has to say. How about you?
