Works for Me Wednesday - Bethlehem Live


Last weekend my family enjoyed a "Bethlehem Live" holy walk. In our area there are at least two churches that do these in December. They re-enact the Christmas story and we get to participate, as fellow travelers.

This is a great way to see the reality of the story that we commonly see as all clean, pretty and tied with a bow. Of course the reality was smelly, lonely, difficult, wearisome, and totally unexpected for those who first experienced it.

My kids were both able to enjoy it and understand at least some of what we were seeing.

I strongly encourage you to seek out opportunities like this in your area and enjoy seeing the Christmas story come to life in a whole new way!

It works for me!
