For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
I love Advent.
I love gathering up the kids in the service prior to lighting the candles.
I love their faces void of skepticism and full of joy.
I pray they see a church that loves Jesus.
I pray they are surrounded by adults that follow Jesus above all else.
I pray they grow to be men and women of deep, mature faith.
