Journey through Christmas

             Princeton's Angel



December 8 & 9, 2012  
Princeton United Methodist Church presents an annual drive-through Nativity Pageant to the Athens area community on the second weekend of December, the performances run from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.
Out pilgrims will welcome you to Journey through Christmas, they will provide a taped message that described each of the five scenes.  The recorder will be collect at the seventh station.

The Annunciation -- Mary is in bed in her sleeping chamber, when an Angel appears and announces that Mary is blessed among women, and will become the mother of Jesus Christ the Son of God.



Journey to Bethlehem -- Joseph and a very pregnant Mary are traveling with a donkey on the road to Bethlehem, and stopping at a nighttime campfire with other travelers.



The Nativity -- In a stable near Bethlehem, Mary reclines with the newborn Jesus Christ, with Joseph and a Guardian Angel staying close by.   A star over the stable marks the site of the birth of Jesus on the first Christmas.   Some townspeople and visitors are camped nearby, and some animals are in stalls at the stable.


Shepherds hear the news -- Shepherds in the field at night are camped at a lean-to, with a campfire and sheep in a fold nearby, when an Angel appears bringing the good news of the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.


The Journey of the Wise Men --Three wise men are camped at night while following the Star on the way to Bethlehem.  Nearby a guard stands duty, while a servant tends a campfire, and camels rest from the long journey.


At the seventh and final Tall Torch, our Farewell Folks collect the tape players that were used to navigate the journey, give our guests a scroll from Princeton UMC, and bid them a fond farewell till next Christmas.
