During advent we wait for the birth of Jesus who, like so many in our world today, was born into poverty – in a stable and laid in an animal feed trough. He was even a refugee, fleeing with his parents to escape the tyranny of the king when he was a child. This Jesus grew, and his example and teachings have changed history. Much of his ministry focused on serving, dignifying and lifting up those in society regarded as weak or worthless. The poor, sick and outcasts of society – like women, children, elderly and foreigners.
With these themes of social justice in mind, this intricate and realistic hand-crafted slum-like Bethlehem scene is made from recycled cardboard and coloured paper off-cuts.
This thought-provoking design, when used for your church’s Christmas worship, looks to help your congregations and communities focus on the needs of others and share the hope that the new-born Prince of Peace brings.
