For our Christmas campaign, we attempt to tell the Nativity story, from a 21st-century angle; as though the events occurred this year.
Mary gets a text from Angel Gabriel and the following conversation ensues between them;
AG: Hello Mary
Mary: Hi, who’s this please?
AG: it is I, the Angel Gabriel
Mary: Uhmm okay….
AG: Fear not, for you have found favor in the sight of God
AG: You would conceive in your womb a son and he shall be called Jesus
Mary: Hahaha, I’m not pregnant
AG: The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the most high will overshadow you.
Mary: Is this a prank? Joe, is that you?
AG: Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age
Mary: What?? Aunty Lizzy??
AG: And this is the sixth month of her pregnancy
Mary: Madd ooo
Mary: Sorry I meant bless God.
AG: For with God nothing is impossible.
Mary: This is scary tho
Mary: I’m the lord’s handmaid, be it unto me according to thy word.
