For several years, Zachary has brought his artistic interpretations of the Nativity as well as the occasional controversy to the church, as he used a scene that traditionally conveys themes of joy and innocence to spread messages of social justice. Over the last few years, his installations have touched on homelessness, poverty and acceptance of gay families.
