Wilmington church’s annual tradition of a live nativity returns


The Wilmington Church of Christ, on the 900 block of West Locust Street, is again having a live nativity scene on its front lawn. The stable and manikin figures were set up Tuesday, and a live donkey and sheep are expected any day to become part of the Bethlehem depiction, too. A church driveway goes right by the scene, so the annual tradition may be especially suited this year to a slow drive-by look, or to up-close visits by individual households.
