Children tell 'greatest story ever told' for Christmas

From Texas-

St. Paul’s on the Plains Episcopal Church relied on its children to share “the greatest story ever told” during a Christmas Eve pageant Saturday evening.

It was at least the fifth time since she was 5 years old that 17-year-old Taylor Liggett performed as Mary, this time narrating as the mother of Jesus as she told of his storied birth 2011 years ago.

As youths from her church acted while dressed in Middle Eastern robes or as angels, Liggett described the virgin Mary’s visitation by an angel informing her she would give birth to the son of God, her journey to Bethlehem with Joseph, the birth of Jesus in a manger, and their visit by shepherds and wise men.

She lit candles between visits from angels, wise men and shepherds as the audience of more than 130 sang Christmas hymns.
