“It brought me to tears and reminded me what Christmas is really all about,” said an official that watched the procession of the LIVE NATIVITY as they walked towards the front of the Supreme Court.
And we have heard comments like this before!
When a live camel, three sheep, and two donkeys make their way to the United States Supreme Court, it leaves people speechless and staring in disbelief, but . . .
When live animals are accompanied by a dozen actors in costume portraying Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus (a real, live, cooing baby), people stop in their tracks and stare—they reach for their cameras and start videoing—and they call their friends and coworkers and tell them to leave their offices and come see this thing . . .
That’s just what happened on Wednesday when your Faith & Action missionary team staged our annual Live Nativity on Capitol Hill here in Washington, D.C.
You should have seen the people pouring out of their offices—including at the U.S. Capitol and Supreme Court—to watch the Christmas drama unfold in front of them!
And they didn’t just see it, they heard it—the whole gospel story read aloud, summarized in the words of the angel to the shepherds, “For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:11)
We were especially blessed this year to have the Nelons (Grammy Nominated, GMA Dove, and Telly Award winning Gospel group) perform several songs! This year’s LIVE NATIVITY wowed, impacted, and blessed our capital city! And, most of all, it reminded our top government officials what the real meaning of CHRIST-mas is all about.
Now we need your help again to ensure that the Live Nativity on Capitol Hill will continue next year!
