No-Rehearsal Children’s Nativity Play, 5:00 p.m., Dawn Star Sarahs Borchelt
In this service, all are invited to hear the quiet story of Jesus’ peaceful birth, the story of the deep human and natural longing for peace. Remember, again, the message this story holds out of the strong, transforming power of love. Participants of all ages are welcome to help tell the story, creating a living candle-lit tableau of holy family, animals, shepherds, stars, and angels. If you’d like a costume, please arrive by 4:45 to choose your (non-speaking) role. You’ll be guided to the right place at the right time by volunteer stage managers.
