The Christmas Poem by the Bible Society shares the Gospel in the context of Christmas
The Bible Society have been exploring various retellings of Bible stories in recent years. Drawing together a selection of authors and illustrators, they have used their storytelling skills to create a number of brilliant Bible story retellings in formats from poems to comics. The aim of their work is to encourage older Christians to share the Bible with the next generation.
This year, they have developed a new Christmas booklet called The Christmas Poem, written by Bob Hartman and illustrated by Honor Ayres.
It uses simple rhyme and colourful pictures to tell the nativity story and explain why we celebrate Christmas today. There is also a fun activity for children to also find the sheep hidden on every page!
This charming retelling of the Christmas story can be watched and shared on YouTube. It is just four minutes long, so it’s perfect for watching at home with the family or for sharing in church during advent.
Elim REACH encourage you to watch and share the video with you friends or share it in church this Christmas season. They can also request a free printed version from the Bible Society website: www.biblesociety.org.uk
