Glen Ellyn Pastor Brings Picture Book to Life

BB Christmas large

Last year the Baby Bible Christmas Storybook was reissued with all new art. This year the author, Pastor Robin Currie, invites area children to bring the angels and shepherds in this board book to life in Spontaneous Christmas messages at 3 p.m. or 5 p.m. on Christmas Eve at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Glen Ellyn. Adapting the simple text to an interactive group experience, the congregation will play the roles various animals while children under 12 will be provided angel halos or shepherd hats to take part in a living tableau. Favorite carols will be sung and worship culminates in a Eucharistic celebration.

Rev. Dr. Robin Currie is Pastor Associate at St. Mark's and Childhood Literacy Librarian at the Glen Ellyn Public Library. She is the author of 10 books in the Baby Bible series, many of which have been translated into languages from French to Arabic. Baby Bible Christmas Storybook (978-0781403689) is available at the Glen Ellyn Public Library or for purchase on line.
