Pupils from Auchinraith during Christmas Service

This morning was the Christmas Service for Auchinraith Primary School at the church. All the pupils who were involved in leading the service did a great job.

The picture above was taken at the end of the message. I played a photographer setting up a photo-shoot of the nativity. Except after recounting the nativity story and dressing up volunteers as all the key parts I got a little too carried away and started adding all the other bits of Christmas from Santa to Rudolph, Snow men to Christmas trees, presents to shopping bags and so on... Until you could no longer see anyone from the nativity behind.

After clearing all those fun things to the side we get to see the real heart of Christmas again, as shown here.

It worked well and kudos to Esther (pictured adorned with tinsel and lights!) for the idea! It fitted very nicely with our "Bubblegum 'n' Fluff" theme.
