While unloading my car , preparing for "A Night in Bethlehem" ward activity....I noticed that we have finally received a little fall....in the parking lot no less....Beautiful still the same.
I was asked to prepare one of the "tents/booths" for the activity. The Bakery.
What is "A Night in Bethlehem"?
Visit “Bethlehem” on the evening Jesus Christ was born. A Night in Bethlehem is a fun activity idea that includes a skit and food found in the market place like the Savior may have eaten. Melinda our Primary President was the master mind behind the activity.
Here is sample wording for the invitation:
By order of his Royal Majesty, the Emperor Caesar Augustus, it is decreed that all the world is to be counted and taxed.
Therefore, let each person and family come for “A NIGHT IN BETHLEHEM” to be taxed according to law.
Donkeys must be tied on the east side of the building and enter through the proper gate.
Everyone must be dressed in Biblical attire to enter the city.
Bring a blanket for your family to rest on from your long journey, you may find that the inn is full.
Each family will be assessed taxes. Watch for tax notices. (2 cans of food- to be donated)
A light supper will be available in the open market.
All taxing will take place on the date, time and place shown in the lower corner. Those disobeying this law to appear, will be sentenced to a holiday season without the true spirit of Christmas.
So let it be written. So let it be done.
Sandi and I each had a tent to do- Mine- bakery, hers fruits.
Pop up tents were used...then draped with fabric-
