Black Nativity: A Tradition of Love and Light, Wednesday, December 21 at 7:30pm

Penumbra Theater

Penumbra’s treasured holiday tradition returns with a focus on compassion, connection, and community. Civil Rights leader and theologian Dr. Howard Thurman suggested that “the work of Christmas” begins after we return to our everyday lives. This work is “to find the lost, to heal the broken, to feed the hungry, to release the prisoner, to rebuild the nations, to bring peace among brothers, to make music in the heart.” This Christmas, the most radical expression of love is justice. Be the light.

First Covenant joins Family Values for Life to attend this experience together. Sign up at the Welcome Center. Tickets are $5 per person. The show will run approximately 2 hours.

Questions? Contact Susan Carlson (M68 Chair) at
