Easter Weekend

I don't normally blog a lot about Easter - mainly because there is so much to cover with the Easter story, I don't really know where to start. And people are blogging out the wazoo about it, and most of those bloggers are a lot more knowledgeable than I about Easter traditions or history. But what I can do is show you some bits and pieces from our annual Easter drama. These are a few pictures and a couple of short videos from last night. We will be doing it again tonight at 8pm, so if you live in the area, PLEASE come by and see it! Everyone works so hard on this. It was my first year watching it instead of participating and it's absolutely amazing. (Faith Baptist Church, 2180 Carthage Rd in West End. Childcare and refreshments provided for free!)

 Scene: The Last Supper (new this year)

Scene: Jesus praying in the garden

Nothing is quite as chilling as watching Jesus praying in the garden, and seeing the guards coming from about 200 yards away, with flaming torches. (Video is 30 seconds long)

Scene: Jesus is brought before Pilate:

Scene: Jesus being forced to carry his cross which he will be crucified on (Video is about 50 seconds long; song is sung by Stacy at our church. I wish I had gotten to video the entire song.)

Scene: Jesus being nailed to the cross

Scene: Jesus being buried, and three days later rising again (Video is 3 minutes and 15 seconds long. The awesome, awesome part starts at 1:30; the part that makes me cry every time is at 1:55)

Please come see it tonight if you have the opportunity!
