On the second Sunday in Advent, we were waiting expectantly with Mary, and we asked the congregation what they were waiting for. Some great answers came back, including Thomas, who said he was waiting for his birthday party. Simon asked him how old he would be, and he said he would be 'Four!'. Simon then asked if he was getting excited about the party, and he said 'Yes!'. When Simon asked him how long he had been waiting for the party, he said, 'FOUR YEARS!'
