Celebrating Christmas

The recent Christmas in Callao celebration featured the Christmas story narrated with a live nativity pageant. From left, Joseph and Mary are portrayed by John Myers Vanlandingham and Casey Dawson, respectively. The story will be retold numerous times as folks gather to celebrate Christmas. To find the Christmas story in the Bible go to Matthew 1-2 and Luke 1-2. To review the meaning of Christmas, go to John 1:1-18 and Mark 1:14-15. Photo by Jackie Nunnery
