Our town has an amazing Living Nativity that the 7th Day Adventist Church puts on. It is a joint effort, with help from many churches around the area. This is their 4th year and it is hard to believe, but it just keeps getting better. We look forward to visiting "Bethlehem" each year. The do a great job of incorporating scripture and prophesy into the telling of the Christmas Story. We are first stopped by Roman guards checking to see what our "business" in Bethlehem was. Of course Josiah had to check out the guard's sword.
Outside, they had a market place. The first stop was the fish stand. The kids loved getting to touch the real fish.
