Largest Live Nativity Scene Ever


Guinness World Record judge Michael Empric determined there were 1,039 participants in a nativity production this week in Utah, along with a camel, donkey and sheep.

That tops the record of 898 people last year at a nativity scene in the United Kingdom.

The event on Monday featured a variety of performers who made videos posted on YouTube. It is also expected to serve as a backdrop for a music video.

Organizers, however, said breaking the record was secondary to emphasizing religious faith over Christmas-season shopping.

“We wanted to do it simply to show the world what Christmas is all about,” said Derral Eves, one of the producers. “It is not all the presents, but it is about the true gift of Christmas — Jesus Christ

“The fact that this is an interfaith event is absolutely wonderful,” Hutson said. “It allows everyone to say — despite our differences in religion. we are all celebrating the birth of Christ.”

        Getting down to Bone !
        The driving motivation in all believers no matter what version of
        religion is the inward view of each person as to what their perception
        of how important they perceive themselves.
        Without a ferment feeling of importance there is no requirement of
        belief in a entity that would “SAVE YOU ”
        Hence the “SAVE” part is the issue.
        People are not praising a entity !
        People are actually demonstrating their own “EGO” in conjuntion with others .
        All religions are in fact “EGO “clubs !
        WOW !!
        And they even can claim it as a tax deduction .

  1. When I said
    “Numbers aren’t important here. The church is next to empty.” – here was referring to, and was looking at the difference in numbers attending there, and those attending the large gathering of the original article.

    I have a bad habit of posting things in the wrong thread. Sorry! I long for the day that Bryan might make this blog into a forum, so I could find my way around, and also find contributors’ lapsed posts I’d like to re-read. 🙂
