WADENA - A Nativity scene that has been a Wadena park centerpiece for many years will be sold to the Ministerial Association and placed on private property after the constitutionality of the display was questioned by a foundation advocating the separation of church and state.
The display depicts Joseph, Mary, the baby Jesus and an angel carrying a banner with the message, “Gloria in excelsis deo,” which is Latin for “Glory to God in the highest.” The city also erected lighted arches along pathways to the scene.
