In the rhythms of the liturgical cycle, Christmas Eve is the darkest, quietest night, where expectation is held as bated breath waiting for God’s incarnation. Christmas Eve at Epiphany also means the pageant, which is why we have two services on Christmas Eve: one to incorporate children into the Jesus story, and the other to intertwine beauty and mystery into a divine dance of anticipation.
The pageant uses script that is simple, adorable, and adaptable. The main characters are assigned, but the other roles can include as many children as show up. We welcome everyone, including nieces, nephews, neighbors, or grandchildren from out of town, and together we celebrate the birth of Christ with barnyard animals, shepherds, angels, and stars! “Stable appropriate” costumes are not required, and our pageant may be blessed with an amphibian, fish, bird, Captain America, or Darth Vader.
