A Christmas play-let

A while back folks said they wanted to see a "Christmas pageant" here for use. I pulled up the ones I had and was not satisfied in hindsight. Having been under the weather with persistant bronchitis, my concentration and sense of play were a bit off.

I finally came up with a Christmas play-let for you. Only 7 speaking parts, but that can be 'padded' by the usual suspects: workers, sheep, shepherds, the innkeeper, etc.

Since many churches are smaller these days (or at least here in these NY parts) without burgeoning Sunday School enrollment, I envisioned something smaller, a bit more quiet..... yet just as telling and inviting. Feel free to stretch it, embellish it, make the sets (just the front of the inn and the stable around the corner) detailed if you'd like. Otherwise, this can be done very simply and gently.

Feel free to use The Guest for a quiet change of pace. If you do, just give a nod to me and the Farm.

If you need something with several more parts (and a few chuckles for the adults and young adults) I will be posting a pageant written by my rector, The Rev. Gawain F. de Leeuw who has graciously permitted his work to be posted tomorrow evening/Tuesday morning.

THE GUEST: A Christmas Story

Thank you all for fete-ing Barbara in the most wonderful way in honor of her ordination to the priesthood. I'll be coming up for 15 years as a deacon in June 2008...... so hold that thought! Blessings to you all this Refreshment Sunday!
