Friday and Saturday evening, members of the community gathered at the Clay County Park on Maysel to enjoy an indoor drama of the life ‘From the Manger to the Cross.’ Many members of the community and local churches worked many long hours preparing for their parts in the play and for the scenery, the sounds, etc. for the play to happen.
The story was about Mary and Joseph as they traveled and stopped in Bethlehem to look for a place to rest. All of the inns were full, but one inn keeper allowed them to rest in his manger. That night, baby Jesus was born and the play showed the stages of his life until he was crucified on the cross and then his resurrection. Christmas has more of a meaning than giving/receiving gifts. The birth of Jesus Christ is the reason for the Christmas holiday!
Thanks to all of the cast ofFrom the Manger to the Cross, all of the volunteers who worked hard and apologies to Roger Hanshaw, narrator and Quincy Mitchell, scenery for all of their hard work and the omission of their names in the program!
