Burnet celebrates the birth of Christ at Main Street Bethlehem

Posted:

The First Baptist Church of Burnet invites everyone to experience the annual Main Street Bethlehem on Dec. 5-7 and Dec. 12-14 from 6 to 9 p.m. Housed behind what seems like a wooden fortress, the moment you walk past the Roman soldier guarding the gate and step over the threshold, you enter a time warp and are transported back to 1 B.C. Bethlehem, and the night Jesus Christ was born.

Explore the Painted Churches of Central Texas

Back in the 1970s, a young college student named Jan Opella wanted to show a friend the little country church with the tall steeple located about 90 miles south of Austin. Her ancestors played an important role in the church’s early years. About 1912 when the church was built, her great-grandparents donated the altar and chose the name, Ascension of Our Lord Catholic Church. That church is one of the Painted Churches of Texas, 15 designated historic places built 80 to 100 years ago by German and Czech immigrants.

He said people will occasionally come in and say they want to do what they see on the popular reality TV show. “They want that experience. They come and realize that it’s really hard at that level.”

Master Chef Secrets 25 Must-Haves for the Kitchen

Stocking your kitchen with the essential tools is the key to making cooking enjoyable, fast, and fun. Many people claim they “hate to cook” or that they “can’t cook,” and you would understand why if you stepped into their kitchens. Even a short, 30-minute recipe that requires only a couple chopped ingredients becomes very laborious when using a dull knife; and then cooking with a cheap, thin pan that causes foods to stick or burn only escalates the problem. No wonder people choose to eat out or warm up a pre-made convenience meal from the freezer.
