Jesus in stained glass

But Jesus called for them and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.”  

Luke 18:16

  As I walk through the hallways of Trinity with our beloved Trinity Preschool children, they often look around at the artwork that adorns the walls of the church. When the children walk up the red stairs to go to music class, they often stop and study the stained glass of Jesus and the children. Some will ask, “Who is that man?” or “What is the man saying to the children?” Some will comment on the doll the child is holding, but most just stare in awe. I often begin to sing, “Jesus Loves the Little Children” as we pass by the beautiful display. I hope that the children will make the connection that like the children in the artwork, they too are loved by Jesus and that this will be a reminder of His love forever in their minds.

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Red, brown, yellow
Black and white
They are precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children
Of the world
