Two Thieves for Christmas
It’s a week before Christmas. Two bumbling thieves (dressed up as Santa and an Elf) just committed a crime. Now they are trying to get away from the scene of the crime. Fearing they will be spotted by the police, they decide to hide out in a nearby church where the members are preparing to rehearse their Christmas play. The Santa is able to conceal his true motive for stopping by the church until the Elf blows their cover. Now Santa must hold the Pastor and all church members hostage until their pick-up ride comes. To keep everyone calm, the Pastor decides to proceed with the Christmas play rehearsal under these less-than-ideal conditions. After the rehearsal is over, the Pastor extends an invitation to salvation to the thieves. It was God’s plan to guide them to this church on this day just so they can come to understand the true meaning of Christmas and salvation through Jesus Christ. Touched by the Christmas story, the thieves decide to end their life of crime and receive the greatest Christmas gift of all…The Gift of Salvation.
