This past weekend, my wifes church put on a live nativity schene at a local park. The park surrounds a small pond, and at various places around the walking path that goes around the park, there were stations setup, each one containing a different “part” of the nativity schene. This first picture shows the Inn keeper and his wife. He lamented about not having any place for Mary and Joseph to stay but Joseph wouldn’t take no for an answer.
This was all put on as a play, acting out the various parts of the whole nativity. They did a wonderful job. It was done in the evening, so it was difficult getting some good photos, the flash was necessary for just about every shot. After the show was finished, everyone was invited back to the church for some refreshments and some treats. They had Hot chocolate, coffee, tea and even hot apple cider. There seemed to be about 200-300 people attending the show, about twice as much as they had expected. It was a little cool that evening but nothing compared to what it should have been for this time of the year.
