The fourth Sunday of Advent is upon us again, bringing us to the morning when we help re-tell the story of the first Christmas (an unrehearsed event, much like our pageant). We’ll hear the call of the angels, follow the star to Bethlehem, pay homage to the infant Christ, and return home by another way.
All ages are welcome to take part in our pageant; if your idea of fun is to ham it up as Herod, gallop around the Sanctuary as a Magi, or snore with the shepherds and sheep, this is your opportunity! We’ll be putting on costumes and assigning parts (all pantomime, no reading necessary!) in the Chapel at 10:15am on Sunday, December 24.
One of my favorite lines in the Christmas story is “But Mary treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart.”
In these few short days before Christmas, I invite you to do some pondering of your own:
Ponder these things in your heart as we tell the Christmas story together in our Unrehearsed Pageant this Sunday morning!
Join us again on Sunday evening for our Christmas Eve festivities:
