Every year our Church has a manger outside the Church, this year was no different. Peter, who does groundskeeping and Church maintenance, went down to the loading dock and carried 4 abandoned wooden pallets up to the Church. One for the floor, another for the back and then the two sides. He nailed them together and created a roof of palm branches and a few boards. Joseph, Mary and Jesus look right at home in this simple manger put together, as it has been for several years, with imagination and Peter's determination. It even lights up at night!
