Take in the live nativity

December 15, 2010 - Linda Lobeck
I'm pretty excited to see that the members of Immanuel Baptist Church in Kingsford are organizing and presenting the Live Nativity again this year. It's something that really helps to stop and reflect on what Christmas is all about. The Live Nativity and spaghetti dinner will be held on Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. When my children were younger, I can remember doing two very special things during the Christmas season. First of all, we would ride about the area (when gas wasn't $3 a gallon) and take in the beauty of the lights and decorations. The second thing was to go by the church and stand and listen to the Live Nativity story being reenacted. Hot cocoa was usually provided in a tent near the Live Nativity giving us a chance to warm up and meet up with other people we knew. To this day, my kids often talk about how those traditions meant a lot to them and that we did them as a family. So, after a few years without this special event, I was happy to see that it's back for families so they can make it part of their preparations for Christmas. And my own sons will be home from college this week just in time for us to experience the same traditions we did when they were younger. Only in the Iron Mountain-Kingsford area will you see a Live Nativity being coordinated with a spaghetti dinner. It's a nice addition and a special outreach being provided by the church members. Everyone involved in the Live Nativity, dinner, and children's activities are taking time out of their own preparations to give something back to the community.
