Jesus Blesses the Children

Mark 10:13-16

13 One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so he could touch and bless them. But the disciples scolded the parents for bothering him.

14 When Jesus saw what was happening, he was angry with his disciples. He said to them, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. 15 I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” 16 Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them.

Our Discovery Garden Statue of Jesus and the Children, appropriately found in the children’s garden, is dedicated to all children, especially those who are deceased. The Children’s Garden reminds us to always honor, cherish and respect the children in our midst as well as those who have died – still much loved and remembered. Children, families, and loved ones and friends are invited to plant flowers in this garden.

Children and families are welcome to plant flowers in the garden.
