The Meaning of Christmas

December 25th, 2009 · by sarra · No Comments

We went to Trinity yesterday for the Family Christmas Eve service. When it was time for the sermon, Father Mark called all the children to sit on the steps with him in the front of the church. We persuaded Link to go up there too.

Father Mark started out by asking the children about the meaning of Christmas. The first little girl said, “It’s about Jesus.” Then I noticed Link with his hand raised. A feeling of foreboding washed over me. Then Father Mark asked another child to answer and got an appropriate, church-worthy response. Link’s hand was still up. Another child, another wholesome response. Link was straining to be seen, his arm thrust skyward. Finally he called on Link, who said, “My daddy likes to open presents.” The whole place cracked up.

Then Father Mark called out, “Where is your daddy?” Alex reluctantly raised his hand. “Why don’t you come up here, too?”

So Alex and Link got to help with the props for the rest of the sermon. And now Link knows the true meaning of Christmas (and so does Alex).
