A child came into the world — and left the world too soon — to bring a message of peace. Of hope and compassion and light and love, love everlasting. And faith. A message of faith in humanity and in something much more, something beyond us and our understanding, but within us.
The Christmas message comes from a child for a reason. A child does not have an agenda beyond finding his way in the world, discovering who he is and what life is all about. In the questions and wonder of children, in their open hearts and their ability to accept instead of judge, the rest of us are shown the way. It is children who teach the rest of us what is important.
