CHRISTOPHER GANNON/THE REGISTERSamuel Ansong, 14, left, and Grayson McElroy, 14, of Lamoni United Methodist Church wheel a life-size cutout of Jesus through the lobby of a movie theater Saturday afternoon at Jordan Creek Town Center.
The story opened this way: "Jesus went to a mall and movie Saturday. As one might expect, he was welcome wherever he went."
Apparently the crowds in Iowa clapped and cheered to see Jesus (even a cardboard image of him) make an appearance at the festival in his honor.
And (of course) Merry Christmas,
