Yesterday I drove home from Cheltenham.
People from a number of churches (but mostly from Holy Apostles Church) had got together to do a Mark Drama production as part of Cheltenham Christian Arts Festival.
I enjoyed working with this team. Everyone worked hard and was determined to be the best they could be.
The first performance filled the venue (which was Holy Apostles Church): I reckon we had 250 people there. The second performance (at Elim Christian Centre) was full too, though the venue was less than half the size. But the right number of people came to a performance – we might not have had chairs for anyone else who turned up!
And the reactions were so positive. In the Comments book someone wrote: Really powerful to feel a part of the story! And another comment read Thank you – wonderful to be in the middle of a story you know so well and live the story in such a powerful way.
So we pray on for everyone who came. Lots of people took copies of Mark’s Gospel and of The Message of the Mark Drama.
Let’s pray for fruit that makes eternity different!
