Surprise at our living nativity enactment
Originally uploaded by sbrent
Our church has hundreds of our members volunteer to create an "evening in Bethlehem and living nativity scene", and 1,500 people attended over the two evenings.
There were live animals, a petting zoo, hay ride, photos with Santa and a Bethlehem cafe.
We had a surprise when the young man portraying Joseph went to his knee during the enactment of the Nativity scene in the stable and proposed marriage for real to the young woman portraying Mary.
Wow. She said yes! This was filmed when the evening was being filmed so I got to see the proposal.
Now that is a proposal that will never be topped and will always be remembered.
"And she gave birth to her first born son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger." Luke 2:7
One tiny baby,
One manger stall,
who sent His Son
to show His love for all.
Merry Christmas to One and to All.
