A Christmas Pagaent

For our children's program at church this year we went back to a basic Christmas pageant. Older kids narrated and had "lines." The pageant included a multitude of the heavenly host and more shepherds than one flock probably needs, but it was one of our "better" programs.

Sadie was a wisewoman/girl/lady. T.S. was a shepherd. (Yes, his robe has Lightning McQueen on it--he's very fashion forward as far as shepherds go.)

Some shepherds had whips and sorting sticks (we are in the panhandle--the beef capital of the world). Some cast members chose not to wear footwear. I think they thought that was keeping it true to the times. Our program had no fancy set or costumes. But it had the most important thing a Christmas program should have--the story of the birth of Jesus.

Santa even made a visit--both kids are still committed to joining forces and asking for a Wii together.
