2019 Christmas Creche

We’re publishing this on the First Sunday of Advent. It’s a gift from our studio at The Shabby to our parish family at Holy Trinity. We hope to do more creches like this in future years, but this is our first.

THE SCENE …

In this creche, we see the members of our “Echos of Faith” Wednesday night Bible study group. They are at the manger in Biblical attire to adore and worship our Lord. He is present in the Holy Eucharist which illuminates the manger. And all around them, barely discernible, is this great cloud of witnesses, both angels and saints. They are all together at the cradle of God’s only begotten Son.

MUSICAL ACCOMPANIMENT …

Below we have a musical video to accompany the unveiling of the Christmas Creche for 2019. It is “Cloverton’s Hallelujah Christmas” based on Leonard Cohen’s song entitled “Hallelujah!”

HOW BEST TO VIEW …

To get the full effect:

  • Start the music video.
  • Right click on the “creche” (above) to open the image in a new tab.
  • View the creche as you listen to the music in the background.
  • Zoom in on the faces. Notice the spirits all around the people at Christ’s cradle. And study what’s taking place inside the manger.

OUR BEST WISHES FOR THE ADVENT SEASON …

We hope this ignites a fire in you that shines light on the true meaning of Christmas throughout the holiday season!
