Gay Nativity Scene with Dog: Love Makes a Holy Family series

Gay Nativity Scene (Love Makes a Holy Family series)

What if the child of God was born to a lesbian couple… or a gay couple? Because, after all, LOVE makes a family, including the Holy Family.
I created my own gay and lesbian nativity scenes this Christmas season. One has two Marys at the manger with the baby Jesus, and the other has two Josephs with the Christ child. I put Mary with Mary and Joseph with Joseph -- like putting two brides or two grooms on top of a wedding cake!
I believe that they are true to the spirit of the Christmas story in the Bible: God’s child conceived in an extraordinary way and born into disreputable circumstances. Everyone should be able to see themselves in the Christmas story, including the growing number of GLBT parents and their children.
Now available as a Christmas card at the Jesus in Love Store
