The first week of December, Methodist churches all over the world have a Hanging of the Greens service in which we learn about the symbols of Christmas and what they represent. It’s a beautiful and solemn service, but our church does it a little differently because the youth group present the symbols and do the readings. They did an awesome job, especially considering how nervous they were. Like a lot of adults, I’m guilty of getting a little anxious anytime teenagers are in a role of responsibility, and every single time—they do their best and impress us all. I’m so proud of them.
