The Nativity Story
At youth group on Sunday evening, we’ll watch The Nativity Story. This film came out in 2006, and is a good depiction of the the events of Jesus’ birth, so I decided to share it with the youth, since it’s pretty likely few of them have seen it.
The movie garnered attention on its release a few years ago, but it hasn’t received a lot of press since then. It’s a great seasonal movie, though, so I think the kids will enjoy seeing it. I think it’ll help them understand all that Mary and Joseph experienced to gain an appreciation of the history of the nativity story. It’s a wonderful film, and I look forward to seeing it again.
Mashed Potato Casserole
This recipe (p. 29) from Doris H. is a fine variation on the way I normally make mashed potatoes. I usually add butter, milk, and salt. This adds other ingredients too–cream cheese and sour cream, which makes the dish more creamy and tasty!
