My ten month old niece played the baby Jesus tonight in the Nativity Play
talk about non-traditional casting!
God bless the United Church for taking the leap of faith
to interpret the baby Jesus as a baby girl
my niece, Emma, was a wonderful baby Jesus
cooing and drooling at all the right places
though, I thought it was funny
when the teenaged kid in braces playing Joseph
tried to shuush her from stealing the scene
I wonder on this all Holy of Nights
if anyone ever tried to shuush the real baby Jesus.
Merry Christmas to all
and to all a good night!
