Oh little town of Bethlehem

7:57 AM

Ever year in a small town in Texas, a church puts on a production called Main Street Bethlehem. For several evenings during the Christmas season, you can go through a set that they have built and watch people make rope, candles and bread. You can visit the inn, a rich person’s home, a jail and a living nativity. It really made you feel like you are in the real Bethlehem. One of my favorite parts about the whole thing is that as you walking along looking at the brass shop a shepherd might come and talk to the brass dealer about angles that appeared to them and told them about the birth of the messiah.

It was a lot of fun and a wonderful reminder of what Christmas is truly about.

  1. Wow! That's sounds like so much fun! It's like a reenactment! I would love to go but I think it would be even more fun to "be" one of the people doing it! What a blessing!

    Merry Christmas Sarah!
