Is this A Night Like No Other for you? Have you been able to retain the sense of childlike wonder that we observed during the children’s message in the smallest of our children this evening?
I know some of you weren’t able to see the expressions on the kids’ faces. I wish you all could have been up close with me and seen every little face. Up close I could see how electrified with curiosity and excitement they are tonight. During Cherie Werner’s charming retelling of The Nativity story, eyes sparkled with curiosity and wonder. I could see the question “How could that be?” almost as if it were written on their foreheads. Wiggling with wonder they clearly sensed, but didn’t even try to understand, the miracle of that long ago Bethlehem night: God’s gift of his own son sent to live among us.
