Making A Difference In The Nation's Capital Through Prayer And Action

Testimony from the Despised

Dec 4, 2018

As our Countdown to the Live Nativity continues, we are now only 9 days from that remarkable moment when the Holy Family, along with shepherds, Wise Men, and sheep, a donkey, and a camel will reenact the nativity scene right in front of the United States Supreme Court. It is an amazing moment.

It is particularly interesting that shepherds are included -- just as they were included in the herald of the birth of Christ. On that night Jesus was born, angels exploded into the night sky to announce to a group of shepherds not only the birth of the Christ Child, but the meaning behind it.

"Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." (Luke 2:8-11)

Amazing! Why?  Because shepherds were the dregs of society. They were outcasts, despised by the respectable elements of society. In fact, the integrity of shepherds was so suspect, they were not even allowed to be witnesses in a court of law. And yet, it was to these outcasts, these rough amateurs, that God chose to reveal His purposes in the Incarnation, and to serve as His first ambassadors of the Gospel.

God often uses the most unexpected people to advance His message of salvation. People like John Chau, the young man who gave his life to bring the Gospel to the unreached people of Sentinel Island in India.

And God uses this small band of costumed characters in the Live Nativity to remind those in the hallways of power In our nation's capital that they too can know the good tidings and great joy of salvation through Jesus Christ!

And you are a strategic part of this important Gospel outreach!

Your prayers, encouragement and GENEROUS FINANCIAL SUPPORT make all of this possible. Without you, we COULD NOT stage this LIVE NATIVITY “CHRISTmas” celebration on Capitol Hill. 

The Live Nativity is an important, dramatic, meaningful, and powerful witness of the Gospel. If you agree, can we count on you to stand with us both in your prayers and in your giving? 

Please consider a gift of $25, $50, $100, or even $500 or more. Your generosity will help us ensure Americans across the nation are able to exercise their God-given, constitutionally protected First Amendment right to publicly exercise their religious beliefs. 


Thank you for bringing CHRIST to Christmas on Capitol Hill!
