Nativity

“Come Let us Adore Him” as the song says. Not just shepherds and wise men but US.

Modern day people come to see the Christ Child. Shepherds and wise men visited the first Christmas. Now it is our turn.

For the second year, this Nativity is displayed on the lawn of Trinity United Church of Christ, Canton, OH. It is a project I supervised last year that took twice as long as planned. A crew of multi-age helpers worked diligently once a week for about six months. The figures are made of paper mache. The tallest stand about five feet.
