Well, I never…
…saw a church nativity program. Never. Not one time in my life have I seen a Christmas program of the actual nativity done at church. I’ve been going to church regularly for 24 years now and I had never seen one until this year. I have to admit, when we settled in I was worried I would sit there feeling critical and cheesey. I have to admit, I was completely wrong.
My family is attending what is a new church for us. We’ve only been there about 3 times so we only know a few people (unfortunately we all left our old church at the same time) and definitely not any of the people in the program. Here’s the deal: I live in the south. Accents y’all. Hence, I was worried I would be critical and it would be cheesey. Instead I was presented with something that clearly much time had been spent on, a wonderful song sung by 2 of the wise men, a great narrator who doned an accent that she must have worked very hard on and tears as the baby Jesus was presented. It felt a little like a scene from a movie. The only time I was pulled back to reality was when one of the wise men said, “Hey, ya’ll” and when the angel said, “You shall call him Jay-zus!”
