This video has it all for Christmas: snow, joy, children, surprise, and a song of praise to Jesus, whose birthday it is. And in a time when so many of us have been grieving the deaths of 20 schoolchildren in Connecticut, it’s especially reassuring to see the life and joy in these schoolchildren from a tiny town in Alaska.
You may have seen it before, but it’s one of my favorite YouTube videos. I could watch it over and over again (and probably will). And on this year-long, every-member mission trip, it’s a great example of how a few people can bring heaven to earth, not only in their own small town, but all over the world.
May the joy of Christmas be yours today, as we celebrate the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
