Imagine walking into the village of Bethlehem . . .
See the Roman soldiers keeping rough order and Roman officials working for the great census . . .
See a poor married couple arrive on a donkey, seeking some place to stay . . .
See shepherds with their sheep being visited by an angel with an astounding message . . .
See wisemen from Persia arriving with a camel, dancers, and gold and gifts for a new born king foretold by the stars . . .
Talk to the villagers as they weave cloth, run a carpentry shop, or gather around a bonfire wondering about what they have heard . . .
