Imagine you’re settling in for another long, cold night of watching sheep. Then all of a sudden the sky rips open and angels appear. A Reader’s Theatre presentation that imagines the shepherds’ surprise and ultimate joy on that first Christmas.
What others are saying:
We used all 5 readings in our Advent services this year. Thank you! They added a beautiful depth and focus for our times together and brought important insight into much about that first Christmas, but also to our ongoing need for the hope, peace, joy, love and presence of our Savior.
~ Pastor Kelly Sikstrom
