Why I want to be a children's minister

It's not only that younger kids believe the things you tell them (which is both an upside and a downside) it's also that they're so much more willing to say exactly what they mean.

At Advent Family Night on Sunday, I was talking with a few kids who were making Nativity scene felt boards, and said I thought it looked really easy. "Then why don't you make one?" said one little girl, who was having her dad cut out all the pieces.

I said I would, but I didn't really want to. So I kept talking, and hoped she'd forget. A few minutes later, the same little girl looked up at me and said "Well, hurry up and do your thing!"

So here it is. I'm not much for perfect inside-the-lines stuff, but I think it turned out all right.
