2013 Theme: Tag You’re It!
Imagine a field full of people.  There are trees on one side, buildings off in the distance, and wide-open spaces to run.  Everyone is welcome here - to belong, to play or rest, to be sad or glad, take a nap or have a picnic.  Not everyone knows about this place.  Perhaps no one has shown them how to find their way to it.  Others have spent their entire lives there, knowing exactly where home base is and where the boundaries of the field slope down and away. Sometimes the children’s games lead them outside the places where they are no longer comfortable and where they encounter those who live beyond the field.  They are interesting people, beautiful people who have never seen the field nor understood its peace.  So the children invite them to come and rest, or be sad or glad, to take a nap or have a picnic or play “TAG!” You’re it.
