Beyond the Shoebox

Tomorrow night is ghosts, goblins and sneaking the kids candy.

After that the countdown for Christmas begins.

The other day I sat down with the kids and talked about what they could do to help someone during the Christmas season, besides packing a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child.

Make no mistake, we LOVE OCC and will be packing our three boxes again this year!

But, I want to get them thinking outside the box (<----see did="did" font="font" i="i" there="there" what="what"> ).

So I'm asking you, Dear Readers, what ways do you practice being the hands and feet of Jesus during the Christmas season that 3 kiddos ranging in age from 14 to 6 could do?

Or maybe you've never done anything but would like to-I'd love to hear those ideas too.

Don't be shy, inquiring minds want to know !

May you score lots of the good candy tomorrow,

I try to do at least one service activity each week during the advent season... Toys for Tots, bringing hot chocolate to bell ringers standing in the cold, possibly going to a nursing home with cards (or singing carols if we can find some friends to do it with) are a couple of ideas that I already have for this season.
