Nativity Characters

Use a nativity scene to help spark group discussion around the holidays.

Bring the characters of a nativity set to your group meeting. Make sure to have Mary, Joseph, an angel, a shepherd, and a wise man. Take a few minutes to allow the group to describe what each of these characters must have been feeling. After that discussion, put the figures in a basket. Pass the basket to the person on your left and have him draw the character out that best describes him at this point in the Christmas season. Have him replace the figure and pass the basket to the next person.
