There were so many people on the last night of the Journey that Jeff and the boys didn't get home until after midnight. It was a crazy, wild, exhausting 10 days of serving at the Journey. I snagged all of these photos, taken by the Photography ministry, and from our church's Facebook page. I didn't get to SEE the Journey this year (because I was serving too, or sick) but I've never recorded this interactive, outdoor, moving production that requires over 1000 volunteers each night and wanted to document it. Because, it is such a big part of our life for 10 solid days and even more because of all the work Jeff and the boys put in the months leading up to the Journey as they are a part of the Journey build team.
The scenes cover the three magi, Mary and the Angel, Mary and Joseph, Joseph and the Angel, Mary and Elizabeth, Herod and his palace, Bethlehem and the marketplace, the Shepherds and the Angel, and the Manger scene. One of our pastor's greet the travelers at the Manger. It's just fantastic - the Christmas story told live as you travel to Bethlehem.
