St. Mungo' s presentation of the age old story of the Nativity formed
the main part of the service on Sunday 18th. A seasonal service with a
different twist created by the Sunday School teachers, supported by the
members of your church.
Titled 'Stories of the Saviour' our
tale begins before the New Testament stories, in fact as all good
stories do, at the beginning!
Our resident scientists, members
Christine Jackson and Sandy Robertson took up the story, rolling

We moved along in our story to Mary being visited by
Gabriel, Joseph by the angel, the journey to Bethlehem for the census,
and the birth in the stable.
We sang 'Silent Night' and the
angels visiting the shepherds, before their journey to see the new born
baby Jesus. This led us into the hymn 'Joy to the World'.
we heard the story of Simeon and Anna, before being left with the
thought 'What's your story' of the saviour?
