Christmas Pageant, RIP

21 August 2007

Sounds as if it’s now official: the annual Christmas Pageant, which through 2005 was presented at the Amarillo Civic Center (free to all) by Paramount Terrace Christian Church, is no more. Word on the street is that the Christmas Pageant will now be replaced by some kind of event at the new church building, out in the affluent ‘burbs along Soncy Rd.

If that’s true, we’ve abandoned a central aspect of the Pageant’s outreach: going to them instead of asking them to come to us.

And this: which do you think is more threatening, intimidating or at least off-putting to an unbeliever: a big, shiny, megachurch building or an older, center-city community auditorium?

Alas. Tony, you were right after all. Reg, thanks for all of the great memories and the passion you poured into it through the years. Kinda hard to believe it’s over for good.
