Every crib invites us to feel amazed at the birth of Jesus. Tonight we blessed our cribs for use at home.
The variety was astonishing - all shapes and sizes, different styles. Some cribs brand new, others over 80 years old... but all of them telling the same story: that Jesus our Saviour was born for us in Bethlehem. The mystery never changes, but each year - hopefully - we appreciate a little more deeply the amazing truth that God took on human nature. The cribs people brought tonight will be displayed in their homes over the Christmas season, reminding us that Jesus came to earth to be close to us, even in the ordinariness of our daily lives. Take a look at the picture gallery below to see some of the cribs that were here tonight.
