This January we are excited to once again tell the story of "Amahl" at Plymouth. Several members of the church will tell the story through drama and song.
Check out the synopsis of the story below.
“Amahl and the Night Visitors” tells a simple tale of a boy and his mother. They live in poverty among shepherds. One night, the Three Kings, on their star-led way to Bethlehem to pay homage to the newborn Christ child, stop for shelter at the rude hut where Amahl and his mother live. They are given hospitality and are entertained by the neighboring shepherds.
The mother envies the gold and other splendid gifts being brought to this child the Kings do not even know. When she is caught trying to steal some gold for her starving child she is forgiven. Then they tell her about their Child and the new light he will bring into the world and the kingdom he will build. The poor widow repents and returns the gold. Amahl, in a gesture of innocent generosity offers his crutch, his most prized possession as a gift to the Child. In doing so, he is miraculously cured of his lameness, and he is allowed to accompany the Kings to Bethlehem to give thanks to the Christ Child.
