The angel Gabriel, aka Sacheo Tanuma, counsels Mary, aka Kesslyn Martin, at the First Covenant Church of Eureka's Live Nativity on Thursday night. The Nativity refers to accounts of the Dec. 25 birth of Jesus in Bethlehem to the virgin mother Mary about 2011 years ago. Eight live nativity scenes portraying the story of Christmas can be viewed tonight [FRIDAY] from 6 to 8 p.m. from a car while listening to a recorded narrative or on foot. To avoid traffic congestion the following route needs to be followed: from Buhne St., turn south onto K St., turn right onto Carson then right onto J St. The nativity is gift to the community from the church.
