Christmas Eve was a delight for the congregation of parents, grandparents and children in particular. Jean L. did a superlative job as narrator while Lynda Greuel, master pageant creator, and her assistants, guided angels, animals, kings and shepherds to their appointed places.
The C. family (Rob, Jen and Luke) took the roles of Joseph, Mary and the baby Jesus. From the littlest angel who enjoyed making her wings move back and forth to the forbidding-looking King Herod befriending the kings from the Orient, the only unrehearsed pageant in Calgary went off as if it had been practised.
The church was full and the singing of the old carols, accompanied by Jeff Jones at the organ and Marg M. at the piano, was enthusiastic. Once again, the pageant was a hit, especially pleasing as it was Lynda’s last in her position of coordinator of The Excellent Adventure.
