Peace on Earth...

...especially during the Christmas Pageant

Reprinted from last week...

Well, the annual Christmas Pageant is in its final stages of preparation. Once again, those haunting carols will bring to life the age-old story of Bethlehem as the angels and shepherds of our own Kindergarten re-enact the mystery of Christ’s birth. Staged in the sanctuary of the church, the Christmas Pageant stands as one of the most beloved of our school traditions. I bet you didn’t know this, but it would be physically impossible to fit all our children and parents into St. James’ Episcopal Church without violating every safety code known to God and the fire marshal! During my first year at St. James’, several parents and teachers offered me their perspectives on what to do to avoid the harrowing scenes of Christmases past with irate parents jockeying for seats several hours ahead of the pageant. And so, that year we piloted a new plan that allowed comfortable seating in the Church for some, while accommodating others even more comfortably in the Parish Hall. Miraculously, the change worked well, and now it, too, has become a beloved Christmas tradition at St. James’.

So, this week, you will receive via Backpack Express two tickets that must be presented at the door on the night of the pageant. Here's how it works...
