Loving on our neighbours – The Christmas Narrative for all

Every year we as a family host a birthday party for Jesus to remind us that it is the birth of Jesus we are celebrating. And every year we enact this nativity script compiled from the events recorded in scripture from Mathew and Luke interspersed with common Christmas carols. Everybody gets to participate (if you don’t pick a specific part you get to simply be a part of the hosts of angels or one of the shepherds or even the animals).This skit is enacted with little or no drama, little or no props and little or no rehearsals – you can get as creative as you want. We have been doing this for the past 12 years or so now. And each time has had its own flavor. And each time we know a little more.

This year we will be doing it 3 times!!!!
Our first time this year was enacting the nativity with our neighbors. Our venue was the Assisted Living facility close to our home. So our participants were children, adults including the residents of the Assisted Living facility -Savannah Court.

Our set up included a 17×24 color-in poster from Selah Art’s Advent collection, for kids and adults to color.

Message me at sujas.selah@gmail.com if you are interested in getting any of the doodles as poster prints (please note some doodles work better than others as posters and I would be happy to work with you on that)

Here is one of our neighborhood kids reading the part of angel Gabriel to one of the residents who chose to be Mary. She was absolutely delighted that she could wear a head cover 🙂 (Unfortunately, we forgot to bring our baby doll to play the role of baby Jesus and she missed that:( ) Next to her is one of the wise men who loved holding his gift for Jesus. Some of our participants were hearing/enacting the Christmas story for the very first time!

This is the estuary – We got together with people from different backgrounds to make a difference in another’s life.

This year we will also be enacting this script at Game Night at Northland, a church distributed. If you are in the Orlando area of Florida please stop by at the rink. We begin at 6pm.
