Another fun year of the Mystery Pals program has just wrapped up, and I am struck by how much fun this program is in an time where we get less and less “real” mail. The notes and postcards I saw being exchanged in our mailbox system were very nice, but there were also stickers, collage art, some coloring pages, fruit, flowers, little toys, chocolates, and other fun little gifts tucked into the mailboxes. In the depths of winter, what a fun reason to come to church!
There’s always next year to join in the fun, but if you don’t want to wait you could think of sending something through old fashioned post to someone in your life. Who would smile to receive some children’s art in the pile of bills and junk mail? Who would love to get a little care package of candy or a surprise gift? Spread some joy around!
