Christmas Tapestry

This story by well-known children’s author, Patricia Polacco, is  heart-warming. The Weeks family moves to a new town to pastor a small, struggling church. The building itself is in bad shape so the entire family pitches in to fix it up. As summer fall fades into winter, the family looks forward to the Christmas Eve service in the church. A storm causes water damage to the front wall of the church. Water seeps through and plaster falls off the wall, leaving a gaping whole right down to the studs. Mr. Weeks and his son discover a beautiful tapestry in an antique store which they decide to hang over the hole. They soon discover that there is a miracle hidden in the tapestry. You’ll need to read to find out what that miracle is.
