This is a script for a Chocolate Nativity – to add a fun element to it you can hand out the bars of chocolate as you go along.
A long time ago, God made the Galaxy – Beautiful,rich, wonderful
And he filled it with people, people he loved, people like you and me, people who were all special to him. And he gave these people everything.Everything except one tree, one Fruit Past-all others which they were told not to eat.
But the people wanted to do things their own way. They decided to Breakaway from God. Trouble is, everything started to go wrong! Things got really really Rocky.Suffering, pain, loneliness, bullying, violence, death – because we’d chosen our way instead of God’s way.
Everything got really Haribo (horrible)
So to give them a Boost God promised that things would change.
One day a special person would come and put things right
Many years later, a young woman was FRIGHTENED OUT OF HER WITS when an angel suddenly turned up. The Angel wondered if he might ease her fear. Don’t be scared he said, You’re going to have a son, the Son of God, call him Jesus
A name that means he’ll save people, he’ll make them friends with God again.
And though Joseph was a bit confused, he was a good egg,you couldn’t hope to meet aKinder man,so he decided to look after Mary, and God’s baby.
So as the story goes Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem. The journey was nopicnic and with Mary heavily pregnant, Joseph wondered if she’d Flake out on the way. From Nazareth to Bethlehem – they might have even passed Jaffa on the way. They finally found a room full of animals – it might not have been a stable, sometimes people lived in a house with a split floor, animals on one level, people on the next, so maybe the innkeeper let them into his home. We don’t know what sort of animals there were, sheep, donkeys, cattle – maybe even a KitKat, but by morning there was Jesus nestling in his mother’s arms.
All sorts of strange visitors started to turn up.
First some shepherds: they’d been up on the hillside, looking up at the Milky Way
When some angels appeared in the sky and said go and see God’s promised saviour
Tell everyone, don’t Wispa,shout it out, God is here.
So straight as an Aero they headed for Bethlehem to find Jesus.
Further away, some wise men were looking up at the planets in the sky: Saturn, Jupiter,Mars, when they saw something amazing. They saw the most amazing Star-bar all others!
So the kings packed up their bounty – presents for the new king
And came to see Jesus. They didn’t find him at king Herods palace,
But those wise men were Smarties,they didn’t give up
And when they found Jesus they brought out their gifts, no Twix, just gifts:
Gold for a king, incense for worship, myrrh for death.
And here’s the Crunch (ie)
Jesus, the baby was the Son of God, sent by God into the world.
And if that story doesn’t make you smile – then Bah Humbug!
