This exacerbates the problem there always is with Nativity plays - lack of female (biblical) main characters (i.e. not just members of crowds).
Male parts: David, Samuel, Nathan, Isaiah, Gabriel, Joseph; also shepherds & wise men
Female parts: Mary
Fortunately we have more boys than girls, and the play will also have some present day characters, who can be girls.
So I was thinking - how could you do a Bible based nativity play with lots of girl parts?
Aha - the women in Jesus' family tree!

Doing New Testament always is quicker, because clothes etc. are more boring, and I don't need to research them, as I already know what they're like. Also, I'd already designed baby Jesus, Mary & Joseph for previous PowerPoints.

I think the Daniel stories are important for kids in the 21st century who, like Daniel, are living in a non-Christian society and need wisdom to know when to fit in and when to stand out.

Hidden in Christ
Made in the image of the Giver of Life
Righteous and holy
Reborn and remade
Accepted and worthy, this is our new name"

If we're Christians, we have instant, personal access to the only wise God, the one who brought forth wisdom as the first of his works and who will give wisdom to those who ask.
Why, then, does it so often not even cross our minds to ask, 'what do you think I should do about this?'?

I did tweak some things from the pencil, like make the boys much taller, and sort the capital on the doorway (and add another)
I may have improvements next time I look at it, of course...
