More than a baby in a manger?
A Star appears, wise men know it's important and set out to find out why... Shepherds - those key workers - unseen but making things happen... A journey to Bethlehem for Mary & Joseph worried about providing a safe place for their child. Angels appearing singing words of hope and peace, encouraging people not to be afraid. All this linked to a baby being born!
2020 has been a tough year, but the Christmas story can help us think about:
Star: What's important to you? Why?
Sheep with Shepherd: Who are you thankful for?
Mary & Joseph: What have been your highs & lows? Who’s supported you?
Angel: What are you fearful of? What would give you hope in that?
Jesus: Is Christmas important to you? Why? Why not?
Around Kingsholm you will find painted pebbles like these. Can you use them, or your own creations, to make a nativity scene, post a picture and tag us?
