Church Spends $1.3 Million On Christmas Pageant

Just imagine how many homeless families could be cared for, fed, given shelter and have the Gospel message demonstrated to them for what it cost to put on a show like this.

Makes me remember why I left the traditional church in order to give 100% of the tithe to the poor instead of spending on over the top distractions for the Saved.

The pastor believes that the original event (the birth of Christ) was more spectacular than their production?
dramatic: sensational in appearance or thrilling in effect; "a dramatic sunset"; "a dramatic pause"; "a spectacular display of northern lights"; "it was a spectacular play"; "his striking good looks always created a sensation"
characteristic of spectacles or drama; "spectacular dives from the cliff"
a lavishly produced performance

I am quite sure that overall the birth of Christ 2000 years ago was quite less spectacular in appearance. Although its consequences are quite spectacular.

I guess what you are saying and I agree with is that we ought to be working on things that are less spectacular in appearance and more spectacular in results.
