Thousands Enjoy Annual Nativity Scene

by Kathy Marson, March 08, 2019

Every year this display is visible to thousands traveling on I-90 to or from Spokane.

For about 30 years a beautiful Nativity display has sat next to I-90 in the Spokane, Wash., area, where hundreds of thousands of cars pass by and see the story of Jesus birth told simply with lights. This Christmas tradition began when a concerned member of the ACLU complained about a Nativity placed in a public, city-owned golf course in Spokane.

Each Christmas this golf course set up an abundance of lighted displays for the enjoyment of the community. But the story of Jesus had to go.

So the Nativity was purchased by Upper Columbia Conference (UCC) and placed by the freeway instead. The UCC staff gathered around the display and prayed for it to bless all who pass by. Since that time, hundreds of lights have been replaced over and over again, but every year the story of the birth of Jesus shines.
