    Joy of animals helps Troy worshipers embrace Christmas

    Louis Aguilar, The Detroit News 7:23 p.m. EST December 20, 2015

    Hundreds of worshipers streamed out of the Zion Church sanctuary following the 11 a.m. service Sunday and surrounded the “live” Nativity scene in the lobby.

    Wow, so many different animals.


    Years ago in a small town in predominately ranching Southwest area, we saw a live nativity featured the usual human roles and a few ranch animals who seemed nervous.
