Children and adults enjoyed “The Magic Toymaker’s Christmas Show” presented at the Sammy Brown Library on Tuesday, December 3. Award winning entertainer Brett Roberts dazzled the group with magic, lights, music, and puppets. Many of the children got to participate as Roberts found magic glowing lights all around the room, usually hiding in a child’s ear. By using the magic words, the audience helped turn a plain white hanky into a picture of a decorated Christmas tree.
The coming of the Son of Man will be at a day and hour that no one knows, as revealed in Matthew 24:36-44. Jesus informs his hearers that He would return at the least expected hour. Jesus placed the idea of preparation in, “seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness . . . .” The Advent Season is a time for us to prepare, honor and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. The scripture teaches us, “Therefore, you also must be ready, for the son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour” (v. 44).
