A great Christmas Program is the Vignette called; Mary, Mary, Mary. It is about the mother of Christ. There are three Mary’s; one the young Mary when she finds out she is to have the Christ Child. The second is the mother Mary, a new mother, pondering how she is to raise Jesus and the final Mary is older Mary wondering how it is her son, is the Savior to the world. It is the nativity story told from a fresh perspective, from the viewpoint of the mother of Jesus the Savior. It has every mother’s worry’s and every mother’s concerns, but it is the mother of Christ our Savior. This vignette evolved over several years, evolved with each performance until it evolved to this moving story of Jesus Christ and his birth, his life and his crucifixion through the eyes of his mother, as only a mother could tell the story. I am glad to share this story with everyone. Please make sure that credit is given to the author; Shelley Smith Beatty.

Please leave your comments and let me know if you use the program.
Beaverton Ward, Beaverton Oregon Stake did the Mary, Mary, Mary program for a special Relief Society Christmas Program. They did a shortened version of the script (only about 10 minutes total). It was edited by their Relief Society President Lynn Stephens. In Sister Stephens own words, “Today at our Christmas Breakfast, three sisters performed the shortened version of MARY, MARY, MARY. It was so loved and touching…the 3 perspectives were so unique, engaging, & insightful! ”
Thank you for sharing with us!
