The Reason for the Season

OHIO VALLEY — And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. —Luke 2:7.

That verse and the rest of the Christmas story as told in the New Testament of the Bible was brought to life over the past few weeks.

Earlier in December members of Carmel-Sutton United Methodist Church hosted a Live Nativity at Star Mill Park in Racine. The event was a fundraiser for the church’s building fund to be used for a new church building.

This past weekend, community members gathered for a Live Nativity at Emi’s Place in Pomeroy. The event at Emi’s Place has become an annual tradition in the village.
