Christmas Words for 2017
Author: Sr. Nancyann Turner, OP
Several days ago the children of the Rosa Parks program were challenged with the question of “What does Christmas mean to you?” Many thoughtful answers occurred. One significant thought that emerged was that we need to choose how we are going to celebrate Christmas….it is not just about getting presents.
We have to almost be Christmas…be the kindness and the love and the birthing that is core to Christmas. Each child spoke a word of how they thought they could BE CHRISTMAS:
Be a friend
Speak your love
Warm a heart
Extend your hand
Try to heal
Worship and pray
Build family and community
Out of the mouth of Children great hope has arisen and great wisdom was spoken.
