This story has been life changing for me. How is the best and quickest way to tell this story, in a non boring way… by acting it out, by drama, by theatre, by making Jesus real, by making his disciples and the people he met real. As a result, it has become the way I want to live my own life by following the way Jesus lived His. It is our history, it ‘s our art, it is our culture, it is in our language and law and so much more. I have always learnt through experiences rather than through books and writing. I have experienced Jesus through this play. I believe that if we watch and listen to what Jesus says in the gospels we will learn quicker, more profoundly and most effectively.
Why give up your time and energy to be involved?
This is my lifetimes work. It is a vocation for me. I want to share what I have experienced. Not in a boring ‘churchy’ way but in an energetic exciting new way. It is the quickest way possible to learn and remember the gospel story. What better thing could I do with my life but share this story through an exciting but traditional medium.
