Spreading the Joy of Christ's Arrival - Thursday Two Questions #168



*Happy New Year!
*  *  *
This year my daughter was old enough to attend the Vietnamese Language / Bible classes. She is doing awesome. Learning prayers in Vietnamese as well as English. She wanted to volunteer to sing with the school's carolers at the nursing homes and hospitals. I was hesitant because of the time commitment and her age, but we went for it anyways. And it turned out to be a great community service as well as experience!

I am so glad she wanted to commit and give. Trinity gave up three Saturdays and a Sunday from 11:30 - 4:30PM. The parents also gave up their Sunday to drive the kids around to the convalescent homes to sing to the elderly. The event worked out beautifully. The group leaders were extremely organized so the execution was flawless.

  4. Our Sunday School class always caroled but I haven't seen a caroler since I've grown up. It is an awesome undertaking and I know you are so proud! My daughter took her teenager to help in a soup kitchen on Christmas and I helped my d-i-l babysit so she could.

  5. They all look so cute in their festive outfits! I love that they went to sing at the nursing homes. We did that when I was smaller and I still remember the joy on the residents faces when we were performing!

    Wishing you and your family a ver happy new year!

  6. This post made me cheerful! Their red santa costume and the enthusiasm on the kids' faces is a joy to view! My son went to carol with his co knights of the altar on Christmas eve. He had a great time. I was once a part of our parish choir. I was not allowed by my parents to join the caroling activity and I missed a lot. ;) glad your daughter had an awesome experience..happy New Year!:)

  7. What a sweet thing that Trinity wished to participate in the choir to sing for the elderly! I bet the old folks really enjoyed the performances, too. Sadly, we do not have carolers in our immediate community. When we were at the mall I was happy to see that they had carolers. The only time I have been caroling was when I was younger. The Girl Scouts' troop I belonged to occasionally went caroling and the church I attended as a teenager always went caroling. I have some fond memories of doing this. It would be nice to see more communities involved in going around the neighborhoods singing again, even if they didn't go from door-to-door, but simply walking around while singing would be a lovely treat to hear...and see.

  8. that's so awesome of TRinity to volunteer, they look very cute with their santa outfits, we do not have carolers in our area that goes home to home, but we do find carolers in the surpermarkets entrance here, they have costume too, and I love listening to them, they are usually the chorale of our local high school for their fund raising.

  10. Nice. I love it when children are involved in charitable acts. We go as a family to visit the nursing home. A simple act of kindness can really bring a smile to a face.

  11. What a beautiful thing. I'm so glad you and your daughter had this experience.

    We did too and it was such a blessing to be out caroling. It took long practice with the kids and driving them to and from,, but always with it to spend more time in God's presence, word, with his people and loving others.

    1) Do you have carolers in your area?
    I've not seen any in our area.

    2) Were you ever a caroler?
    I was not as a child. That is why I signed my kids up to have the experience too.
