2012 Dec. 09 2012 Children's Xmas Play – A Little Child Shall Lead Them
The traditional Christmas story was told in an nontraditional way this year at St. Matthew's United Methodist Church in Bowie, Md. On December 9, the story of Jesus' birth was told as if it were breaking news. Each scene had a reporter, who then interviewed the usual characters about what was happening to them or around them. For example, Mary and Joseph gave an exclusive interview both before and after the birth of Jesus. Also interviewed was the prophet Isaiah, along with some animal friends, who shared his insights into the coming of the King. To wrap it all up, the main news anchor and some knowledgeable children brought all the stories together to reveal the Good News. – the King is here, his name is Jesus Christ.
