Drama can be a wonderful tool for presenting spiritual truths in a fresh and creative way. "Come All Ye Faithful" is a valuable resource for churches seeking new methods for presenting the joyous message of Advent and Christmas. From an insightful allegory illuminating the symbolism of the Advent wreath to mice depicting the nativity scene in whimsical verse, this resource will appeal to any dramatic preference.
These plays can be used by congregations of almost any size, with only minimal props and costuming required. Copy privileges are included.
The plays featured in this volume are:
- "The Living Advent Wreath" -- a musical allegory depicting a pilgrim's journey to discover the true meaning of Advent as revealed through the Advent Wreath (sheet music is included).
- "The Mouse Christmas" -- a lighthearted children's play written in rhyming verse.
- "The Ad Vent Wheat" -- a humorous children's play offering a slightly altered view of the Christmas message.
Each of these plays will help congregations capture anew the true joy of the Advent and Christmas season.
