There is something so pure, innocent and moving about hearing a little person's voice tell the nativity story. A few years ago, I fell in love this video, produced by a church in New Zealand.
Then, last Christmas, I met my now-sister-in-law Cath. She is from Auckland, New Zealand, mind you. She was visiting over Christmas and we got talking.
ME: Hey, there is this incredible YouTube video of kids telling the Christmas story. It was produced by a church in New Zealand. Have you ever seen?
CATH: Yes! As a matter of fact, that is my church and I know some of the kids in that video.
I was so tickled! I mean, come on, what a small world, indeed. So here is the fabulous St. Paul's Church where Cath and Jon were married this summer. (And, yes, I am planning on sharing my NZ adventures in a near-future post. )
If I lived in Auckland, I would SO be a part of this church. It was so wonderful getting to know many of its congregants during the wedding festivities.
And now another fine video by St. Paul's.
Stay tuned tomorrow for their most recent Christmas video.
P.S. Here's a special shout-out to my Kiwi friends: Anna, Mike & Bex, Charles, Katrina, Janine, Liv, Louise, Blair & Brenda, Pamela, Rachel, Michelle and Kylie. I wish we lived just a wee bit closer!
