THE LIVING NATIVITY
SOLO “Do You have Room” Kimberley Shaddick
Rev. Alice: May we leave here this evening filled with the wondrous gifts of our Lord and eager to spread the love of Christ to all we meet. May we be filled with the wonder of Mary, the obedience of Joseph, the joy of the angels, the eagerness of the shepherds, the determination of the magi, and the peace and love of the Christ child. For unto you is born this day in the City of David, a Savior, who is Christ our Lord. Amen.
