“Where the Wild Things Are”

February 18 – March 18, 2018

After Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River by his cousin John the Baptist, he went out in to the wilderness for 40 days.  The Bible tells us that wild animals were there in the wilderness, but also angels, who came and helped Jesus.  Children know a truth about the world that we adults try to forget. Children know that the world is a scary, wondrous, miraculous place, all at once larger than we can control, and yet we must live in it. That while the world is too large, with doorknobs too high to reach, and cars looming around every street corner so that you must look both ways, and dogs that might bite but might also be nice to pet – children know that maybe you will tame the wild things with a magic trick, and maybe you won’t.
