I was honored to be featured in a wonderful blog called, Shining the Light. Shining the Light was created by a fellow writer and good friend, Jessica J. Brodie. Read more about Jessica and connect with her online at the link below.
The play started out with the virgin-born birth of Jesus. Mary came riding in on a real donkey, and the inner child in me jumped for joy; I wanted to go pet it, but it was hardly the time. The play continued into Christ’s life, how he was baptized, about his apostles, the miracles he had done, and so on. I glanced down at Cat a few times to see her enthralled with the whole story.
Then Palm Sunday came, and Jesus rode in on yet another real donkey. Then came the betrayal and arrest of Jesus. The next time Jesus entered in, they had a life-sized cross, which he carried, and real whips that made an awful sound. I jumped at the sound. True, it startled me, but it also made me wince at the pain Christ must have felt. What he went through for us, to save us. I could only imagine what Cat was thinking.
Then Christ was crucified. The next scene was how they found the empty tomb, how Jesus wasn’t there. He had risen, just like he said he would. All in all, an excellent play.
