To see all those children makes me jealous. My parish hasn't had a Christmas program since I arrived. We don't have that many children to warrant a program. Not only that, but Advent midweek services went by the wayside this year. Nevertheless, I'm still here, distributing the Means of Grace and enjoying it. Thanks for the photos.
Well, only a handful are OURS. The rest are simply children we reach in the Daycare/Preschool/Latchkey. We're blessed to be able to share with them. And this program and its twin at Easter are the two huge occasions when we get the non-St. Paul COMMUNITY to darken the door of St. Paul's. We love it!
P.S. Giving out the gifts is the greatest joy of all, David, whether to the young little ones or to the old little ones. All God's children deserve a pastor - thank God for all you do for them!
I am most thankful for serving here. I'm praying for the Lord to provide us with some young families. We've seen some children of my members come back recently with their children in tow. We'll see what happens.
