I thought I'd carry over yesterday's theme of Nativity Sets to today. Let me say, I love love love this idea. I think it could be a tremendous ministry to witness to neighbors and friends. This is one of those things I hope to do when Kendall is a little bit older.
The jist is that you buy a nativity set (walmart has relatively inexpensive ones). Wrap each of 12 pieces separately and give to a neighbor to open one a day until Christmas. The original sources have free printable poems or bible verses for each piece. Such as for the star:
The star was hung in Heaven
to announce a royal birth
the Savior of all mankind
had been born upon the earth.
What a witness tool this could be to spread the true meaning of Christmas.
I originally found the idea on pinterest (Imagine that). Here's the 2 sources:
