Themes

December 2015

Joy!

Due Date: 05/01/2015

The December issue of Pockets takes on a life of its own as we turn to Advent themes such as waiting, hoping, journeying, giving, and sharing love, joy, and peace. This issue should help children begin to understand how Jesus’ birth, God’s incarnation, is made new for them each Advent and Christmas and how this sense of Emmanuel, God with us, guides our lives throughout the year.

 

 

Special Needs

  • Articles about real children involved in environmental efforts, peacemaking, and helping others.
