PUPPET 1

Welcome, boys and girls! Today is the third Sunday of the advent season. The theme for this week is joy.

PUPPET 2

Joy! Woo-hoo!

PUPPET 1

What was that all about?

PUPPET 2

I was being joyful. Woo-hoo!

PUPPET 1

Joy is not the same as being happy or excited, although they can be a part of it.

PUPPET 2

Wait! You mean being joyful is not the same as being happy?

PUPPET 1

Well, no. Christian joy is the result of the victory we have through our faith in Jesus. Oh, it can make you happy.

PUPPET 2

Woo-hoo!

PUPPET 1

It can make you excited.

PUPPET 2

Woo-hoo!

PUPPET 1

It may even make you jump for joy!

PUPPET 2

(dancing around)

Woo-hoo!

PUPPET 1

But it goes deeper than the expression of things on the outside. It's that satisfaction way down deep. Down in your soul.

PUPPET 2

So, it's really more than just being happy. It's about being soul satisfied!

PUPPET 1

That's right!

PUPPET 1 AND PUPPET 2

(together)

Woo-hoo!
