Meet the Magi.
(Children’s voices: Advent means to me, happiness all the time. I think Advent means time to prepare for Christmas. I think Advent means, when Jesus was born. I think we can get ready by hanging out with family and praying. I think we can get ready by going to church and praying.)
Christmas is coming. Are you ready?
I wonder if the Magi are ready?
“But it is so far.”
I wonder if they know where to go?
“Oh look, a star.”
The Magi travelled a long distance to visit Jesus and his family.
“Don’t be afraid” (an angel told them). In God’s story, we can all find our way!
Are you ready?
