Christmas tradition goes back in time

Emmanual Baptist Church’s eighth annual Bethlehem Star production a hit

An annual holiday tradition took residents for a stroll back in time last weekend.

Emmanual Baptist Church hosted the eighth annual Bethlehem Star production.

People bartered for goods with shekels in the bustling Market Place, then joined the Roman Army or visited with livestock. Along the way they meet some shepherds, wise men and got a glimpse of the live nativity.
