On December 22, young and old joined together to create and inspire in the Intergenerational Advent Event at Mayfield.  The Mayfield children gave short presentations on the theme, “Where can I find the nativity story in action today?”  What if Mary and Joseph stopped by our farm, our town, our church right now?  Where do we find welcome and shelter in our own community today, living out the spirit of the Christ child?  Then all participated in making ornaments, Valentine’s for deployed soldiers, and prayer blankets for those displaced by the tornados that devastated parts of Illinois in October.  It was a magical, unique celebration of Advent that all enjoyed.
