Nativity 2022

The Nativity scene was set up at the mission church on Nov. 30, 2022. The symbols and images of our faith being given to us in a manger remind us of the tender mercy of God toward the people of Israel and more extensively to us who have taken to heart his message and have been adopted into his plan for salvation. And so, in the words of Jeremiah 32:38: “They will be my people and I will be their God” the Nativity comes to life as a representation of the incarnation. Special thanks to Fil, Carolyn, Anastasia, Anthony and Fern as well as Deacon Tony and Rosie for organizing the event. Below are some pictures.
