The Animal's Version of Christmas



It was delicious. Typical performance theatrics aside, the true spirit of the drama was poignant and watching it played out by our children was a breathtaking priviledge. They worked very hard to pull off such a heartfelt rendition of the Christmas story, told through the words of the stable animals (give or take a few artistic characters like the Police Dog and the Lion and the Dove). The leaders and parents who unselfishly gave of themselves to coach and organise the kids, and then treat them afterwards with a lavish party were amazing. I was blown away observing the hands that together lifted strings of cheerful bunting, christmas lights and whisked a vacuum over the mess afterwards. The hands that served platters of food, painted faces and scooped icecream. The hands that clipped on headgear, took off shoes, passed microphones and led dance moves. Those hands all linked to form a cradle of investment for the crowd of little ones that are growing up together. Encircling the future.
