Thinking outside the box

Someday I'd like to have a hand-carved nativity scene. The idea of an artist carefully crafting each piece by hand seems much more spiritually meaningful, and more like how I imagine God must operate, than mass-produced plastics injected into the same molds. And I'm fascinated by the different perceptions that people from different backgrounds, experiences, and cultures have about the nativity, and about God. I want to see with new eyes.

This beautiful Maasai nativity is from Ten Thousand Villages, hand made by artisans in Kenya.
