The Joy Of The Box

Every Sunday, our pastor, after finishing the Children’s Time where he calls the younger kids down front and has a short message for them, gives The Box to one of the kids. It’s a brightly decorated shoebox, and the kid will bring it back the next Sunday with something in it – the only rule is, nothing alive or recently alive. The pastor then uses whatever is in the box as the basis for his message to the children that Sunday. Since he doesn’t know ahead of time what’s in the box, it makes for some interesting moments on occasion, like yesterday when the item was a Mickey Mouse bobblehead.
