OGUN, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) –For many people living near Crestwood, Kentucky, one Christmas tradition is driving through the live Nativity at Ballardsville Baptist Church. But this year, the weather threatens to interfere with all those animals.
World Radio reports “If church volunteers were hoping for starry skies and a light covering of Christmas snow for their outdoor living nativity…well…let’s just say this is no Normal Rockwell painting. This is “Noah-go-build-an-ark” kind of weather. Dark clouds. Thunder. Torrential downpours. Many in the congregation are wondering if the show must – or even can – go on.”
“We do it in rain. We do it in the snow.” Says Sandy Williams, the organizer.
Sandy Williams popularly known as The Manger Manager said since the inception of the event, it has only be cancelled twice in the last 15years.
Those winds are the concern. As the volunteers gather in the fellowship hall over chili, hot dogs and cookies, weather is the topic of conversation.
