Deadline: 1 May 2012
December 2012: Gifts
Advent and Christmas are natural times to think about gifts—God’s gift of Jesus for all of us, the gifts the magi brought to the baby, the gifts we give to one another. As we focus on seasonal themes of peace, hope, love, and joy, we want to ponder God’s gift and how we respond by giving our own gifts of time, love, patience, kindness, and compassion.
EDITORIAL PHILOSOPHY: The primary purpose of POCKETS is to help children grow in their relationship with God and to claim the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ by applying it to their daily lives. POCKETS espouses respect for all human beings and for God’s creation. It regards a child’s faith journey as an integral part of all of life and sees prayer as undergirding that journey.
• Articles about real children involved in environmental efforts, peacemaking, and helping others. Please send photos of these children with your manuscript and indicate the name and address of the photographer. We prefer photos of the children actively involved in their project. Digital photos must be 300-dpi for clear print resolution. Please include parents’ permission to use photos.
• Interviews with well-known people, relating how their faith in God is important to them in their daily lives.
For submissions: Send all manuscripts with SASE to Lynn W. Gilliam, Editor, P. O. Box 340004, Nashville TN 37203-0004. Do not send submissions via fax or e-mail.
