|Nativity play at St Catherine's Stuttgart|
Christmas Eve service in Tanzanian Lutheran churches is the Christmas pageant, but starting with the angel's visit to Zachariah and ending with the slaughter of the children in Bethlehem. Totally different from the Nativity scene that we saw at St Catherine's Anglican Church in Stuttgart. St Catherine's is an English speaking Anglican parish which used St Catherine's Catholic Church facility. The scene began, as it does in America, with the arrival of Mary & Joseph at the stable, followed by shepherds, sheep, and Kings.

We wish you all a wonderful, blessed Christmas and Happy New Year.
