I grew up in church – Sunday School. Vacation Bible School. Friday Night Youth Group. Each played a vital part in my life. They were my introduction to Jesus and to community.

I have such fond memories of participating in the annual children’s Christmas program. The girls all in their very best Christmas dresses and black patent leather shoes. Banana curls! Who can forget those banana curls!!! The boys in dress slacks, their clip on ties, bow ties, vests or jackets. We said our parts and sang our hearts out. And we never forgot a single moment of the preciousness of the night.

In a manger.

Fullness of time.

There were shepherds.

Cattle are lowing.

An angel appeared.

Do not fear.

The baby lay.

He is Christ.

Wrapped in cloths.

Glory to God.

Peace to men.

Mary treasured up.

Followed the star.

Wise men worshiped.

God with us.

“So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in a manger.” (Luke 2:16)
