While I've never given my students a "sermon," per say, I've often thought about it. After reading the advice you linked to, I feel like I at least have a better point of view about the whole situation. Thank you so much for sharing these terrific (and very helpful) tips and tricks. I plan on keeping them in mind if I do decide to lead a children's sermon.

Oh wow! What an awesome post. I have never read someone who I so agree with.
I scream as over and over and over on Children's Ministry sites object lessons are pushed. This has been a pet peeve of mine for so long.
Most sermons for children in the adult service are done for adults rather than the children - as is most of what we do in overall cihildren's ministry.
Years ago I learned to do what we call Reality Learning - it allows the kids to experience the concept being taught in class. Been doing it for 30 years and amazed at how the kids respond. I explain it here http://www.kidtrek-sundayplus.org/2011/01/07/child-discipleship-how-children-learn/
Emotions are very involved in this learning experience.
Thank you for your post - excellent.
