The Sunday Before Christmas

The Sunday Before Christmas begins with a twist on the famous poem by Clement Clarke Moore: “’Twas the Sunday before Christmas and all through the Church…” In the opening scene, we see St. Nicholas walking down the church aisle with a sack of gifts on his back. These gifts are different from the usual consumerist stuff. Instead, these gifts are straight out of the Gospel–faith, hope, family, friendships, and salvation. True to the Bible and appropriate for a church or Sunday school setting, The Sunday Before Christmas shows the power of the Lord to get His work done every day of the year.
