VALE––Living Nativity scenes have been part of America’s Christmas traditions for generations.

And in Vale, you won’t want to miss what Cedar Grove Lutheran Church is doing.

Come Saturday, Dec. 11, and again, Sunday, Dec. 12, 6 to 8 p.m. both evenings, Cedar Grove is presenting live drive-through Nativity scenes, according to Christian Ministry of Lincoln County Executive Director Mitzi Williams (see related coverage of Christian Ministry, only here in The Herald). 

Did you know?
It's been nearly 800 years since St. Francis of Assisi created the first living Nativity. In 1223, in a cave near the central Italian town of Greccio, Francis staged his tableau vivant using local villagers and live farm animals. The whole idea was his way of teaching the townsfolk a silent lesson: placing the Christmas emphasis on Christ Himself, not material gain.

As Francis famously said, stressing the importance of altruistic action and actively helping others, just as Jesus did, “Preach the gospel at all times. If necessary, use words.”

The monk’s idea caught on swiftly. Very soon, Nativity scenes spread throughout all of Europe. And the rest is history.

Cedar Grove Lutheran Church is located at 261 Cedar Grove Church Road in Vale.
