Christmas Day 2008














The poinsettias before arrangement and our primary nativity scene in the Gathering Space. Those are luminaria in the gold bags--they encircle the entire scene. The white background cloth hangs from the ceiling to make a natural background.



Here are two of many diverse nativity sets around the Mount and at ministry sites. These are African and Asian.





And, after a one-year hiatus, the large chapel Christmas tree is back. Stunning--in shape, size and beauty!
