Recently, my friend, Lin, asked me to post pix of my dynamic manger scene display. I promised to do that. It seems only fair as many of her friends wait eagerly to see her Christmas display and where will the pope and the hooker be this year.
Using figures that Sylvia’s mother made for us, I set up the scene as it might have been and follow the story as it may have developed.
This year, the story begins with the engaged couple, Joseph and Mary at home. This was before the Roman the census that required men to return to their ancestral homes to register for that census.
Thus we see the pair before their journey.
The contented cow awaits at the manger, which will become the focus of the story.
Subsequent posts will follow Joseph and Mary on their journey.
