Best Christmas Pageant

I just saw the play, "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever," produced by the Rockingham County Theater Guild.  They did a great job with the production, and it is great story anyway.

In the play, a church's Christmas pageant looks like a looming disaster because a family of six unruly kids shows up to be part of the play.  These kids end up learning the Christmas story for the first time, and really take it to heart -- in their own way.

I know the story, but it still made me cry.  Jesus always shows up in unexpected ways, especially when we think we have things all figured out.  I'm glad to see him at work.  I think he loves to push people like me out of our comfort zones, so we can see who he really is.
