Tonight, I was shopping at Walmart with one of the girls I work with, and we ran across someone from the church the girls attend here in the community. They had just gone to a local production of a Singing Christmas Tree. Having never been to one, the man explained that basically they reanacted the "christmas story" of Christ's birth, and as in years past, they ended with the crucifixion and Christ's subsequent return to heaven. Mind you, I don't mind shows. I can deal with them. I don't much choose to go to many of the holiday productions at other churches, but if my church chooses to sport a holiday production, I will certainly support one. But what really cracked me up and tickled my funny bone was that the man said that one year, they had Jesus rise out of the top of the Christmas tree and ascend back to heaven from there. Seriously? Are you kidding me? Really? I bet the shepherds were happy!!
