People take away many fresh insights after a course at St George’s College, Jerusalem. Fr. Richard Bonifant participated int he Palestine of Jesus course in July this year. He was inspired to create a new telling of the Christmas story.

Richard wrote in a recent Facebook post:

When I was in Israel back in July Greg Jenks raised the question of why more people don’t contextualize the Christmas story! That sowed the seed … so here it is, this year’s pageant: A Very Kiwi Christmas.
