Sunday morning and I’m on the streets with 3 other helpers from local churches… We’re standing dressed as security guards around an empty cot. That’s it.
As people asked what we were doing, we found ourselves saying:
“We are waiting for the birth of a king!”
“There’s a baby going to be born soon!”
“The king is coming.”
“Apparently there’s a king going to be born soon.”
People looked and tried to figure out the strange sight… If people wanted we offered booklets of the nativity story.
On a number of occasions being observed what we were doing and then said, “arh, I get it…”
Nearby on a small table we offered crafts of making a crown, for children to make and then hang up on their Christmas tree.
