A beautiful telling of the Christmas story. Moving music to accompany the story. Also, a touching play for churches and organizations to put on during the Christmas season. All this and more is what you’ll find in Holy Stable: Celebrate the Miracle by Heidi Hanseen.
I wasn’t quite sure what to think when this small booklet with its stunning cover art arrived in its plastic sleeve. First, I read the lyrical story of that first Christmas. How the angel Gabriel visited Mary to announce she would bear God’s Son. Then Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem to be taxed and finding nothing more than a mere stable. The story then speaks of the young couple as Mary labors, and the birth of the King. It ends with the shepherds and the Wise Men coming to witness “Heaven’s gift from above.” Several striking photos appear with the story.
Also included with the booklet is a CD that includes four versions of the music. In addition to the first two version that have the words, this CD has an instrumental version for your own vocals and actors, and an instrumental version with cues to simplify timing for your narrator. I listened to all of them, because they are beautiful.
Within the final pages of the booklet you’ll find a glossary, which can help the producer of your Nativity play explain certain words from the script to younger cast members.
This is a truly beautiful package that will help you, your family, and your church celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. Highly recommended!
