Mary gave birth to Jesus in the stable of an inn and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger. – Slide 1
There were shepherds living out in the fields near by, keeping watch over their flocks at night. Suddenly an angel appeared. – Slide 2
The glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  – Slide 3
The angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for everyone. Today in the town of David, a Saviour has been born to you. He is Christ, the Lord. You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.’ – Slide 4
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,  ‘Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom His favour rests.’ – Slide 5
When this great army of angels had returned to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, ‘Come on! Let’s go to Bethlehem! Let’s see this wonderful thing the Lord has told us about.’ – Slide 6
They ran to Bethlehem and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger.  – Slide 7
The shepherds told everyone what the angel had said to them about this child. All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished. Mary quietly treasured these things in her heart and often thought about them. – Slide 8
Then the shepherds went back again to their fields praising God for the visit of the angels, and because they had seen the child, the angel had told them about. – Slide 9
