BRISTOL, Conn., Dec. 21 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Hillside Community Church plans to display a nativity scene in front of the Bristol City Hall on Friday, December 22, from 3:30 P.M. to 4:30 P.M.
The City Hall is located at 111 North Main Street, Bristol, Connecticut.
Hillside is joining with the faith community across America that have applied for permits to set up nativity scenes in front of their city halls, government centers and or state capitol buildings between December 19 through the 22.
"The Nativity Project" is a public witness to remind people of the powerful message delivered on the very first Christmas. And that is, "Peace on Earth. Good will toward man."
It is also a witness to address the growing hostility toward public expressions of faith, especially during the Christmas season.
Terry Mahoney, spokesperson for the project comments, "Sadly, we are seeing a growing hostility toward expressions of faith in the public square. This is especially true during the Christmas season when there appears to be a concerted effort to remove the true meaning of Christmas from public view. 'The Nativity Project' is a positive way to share the message of the season which is one of peace and good will toward man. It is also a strong reminder that the First Amendment provides freedom 'of' religion and not freedom 'from' religion and the role of government is to protect expressions of faith and not crush them."
