Welcome to the Living Christmas Trees. “Journey To The Manger” is this year’s theme featuring choir, orchestra, stage ensemble, student and children’s choirs, drama cast, and nativity.
Journey To The Manger
The story begins as a Pastor from a local church enters the gallery of the famous sculptor, Nathan Row, in hopes of purchasing a Nativity scene for his church’s Christmas morning celebration. he sets his eye on an exquisite piece hand sculpted by Nathan, only to realize its exorbitant price tag is far beyond his reach. After the Pastor leaves, Nathan explains to his wife Christine that Christmas is nothing more than a commercial venture centered on a far-fetched myth.
Despite Christine’s convictions to the contrary, Nathan can’t be swayed from his cynical outlook. That night, as Nathan falls asleep in his studio, pieces from the Nativity, Mary and Joseph, come to life and transport Nathan from the Depression Era, to Italy during the Renaissance, the streets of England, a simple church in Austria, the manger, and finally back to the 21st century, where Nathan begins to understand the joy, hope and love that Christ brought on that first Christmas night. Awakening from his dream, Nathan excitedly tells his wife of the events and the change he’s experienced as they rush to the local church to deliver a special gift to the Pastor and his congregation. His gift of the exquisite Nativity is only a small gesture compared to the most wonderful gift of all. . .eternal life.
