Gather your family and experience the true spirit of love at Christmas
through this timeless gift of story.
The Nativity Collection was written by Pastor Robert J Morgan as a gift for his congregation. 1 story each year and this little book is a compilation of 6 of those stories. You will find a story about a grandfather and his grandson who are trapped in a blizzard and trying to survive, there is also the story of Ollie, another of a family who's car (with it's food and presents) disappears on Christmas Eve and the lesson that is learned by this family. The pictures in the book are beautiful and designed to draw your heart and mind toward Jesus, God's ultimate gift to us.
This book is ideal for families to read together and will be easiest for children 5/6 and up to understand and listen to. Some of the stories will encourage questions & discussions (such as how would YOU feel if we had no presents on Christmas Day). The pictures would be fun to recreate as a family art project or to make Christmas ornaments.
Suggested use: Start reading 1 of the stories each night for the 6 nights before Christmas and on Christmas Day, after breakfast and before you open presents, read the Story of Christmas (Jesus' birth) from Luke 2. Why? Because our true focus on Christmas should be on Jesus. Jesus is God's Ultimate Gift to us in the form of a baby which led to Salvation at the cross and being redeemed in the eyes of God through the resurrection.
