I have had the joy of experiencing Advent this year with the kids of Christ Church and it has helped me see it with new eyes. Children do not share the burden of dwelling on the past and fretting the future as adults do. They see the NOW. Right now. I love that when Pastor Adam asks them what they want for Christmas, they stand up in front of church proudly declaring a list of 20 things, or they answer with one simple request of ‘Daniel Tiger’ or even ‘a pet tiger”. They are so good at being real.
