A Living Nativity

One of Clarksville's regular Christmas events is the Grace Nazarene church's living Nativity.  It's been several years since we've been.  It was a drive-thru event but is now a 'ride-thru' on a tractor pulled hay wagon.  (I suspect there was an issue with cars taking too long at each scene).  You parked a couple miles away and were shuttled up to the church.

Each wagon had someone who would narrate the scene with story interlaced with Bible verses.  They did an excellent job.


The first scene told about the census that brought Joseph and Mary on the journey to Bethlehem.


A centurion.


Turned away at the inn.


The angels proclaiming His birth.


Magi visiting the stables.  We loved the live camels!


The reason for the season.


And why there IS a season...


After the ride, visitors came into the church for a bit of hospitality.  Cookies and hot cocoa were served to everyone.


In the sanctuary carolers sang Christmas music.  You could hear them out in the refreshment area or you could go in and enjoy.

When you were done, it was back onto the shuttle for a quick trip to your car.  As we got off, we were handed a lovely little olive wood ornament of the Holy Family as a remembrance.

What a lovely evening!
