Jesus with a Switch

The kids were putting on the Christmas play. To show the radiance of the newborn Savior an electric light bulb was hidden in the manger. All the stage lights were turned off so that only brightness of the manger could be seen, but the boy who controlled the light got confused—all the lights went out!
It was a tense moment, broken only when one of the shepherds said in a loud stage whisper, “Hey! You switched off Jesus!”
