Sunday Celebration and the Book of Luke!

And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered.  This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.  And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his bethrothed wife, who was with child.

So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered.  And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.



Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night....


And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. (This nativity set given to me by my mother-in-law is over 90 years old from Germany.)

Lovely nativity...it looks very similiar to the one I inherited from my mother. Mine is a smaller version, only the standing the standing angel, one sheperd with the lamb on his back. As a child, I always took such joy in placing the baby Jesus in the manger. Thanks for sharing!
