"Jesus the Dreamer"
Drama Ministry around Passion Play

April 14, 2019, Palm Sunday, 9:00 AM
South Congregational Church
27 Pleasant Street, Concord

 

There’s something deeply stirring when members of a congregation come together in the  sacred and challenging work of sharing the Good News through drama. For over 10 years now,  South Church, under the guidance of Co-Pastor Rev. Carlos Jauhola-Straight, has engaged younger members in presenting an annual Epiphany Tableau.

Three years ago, Jauhola-Straight initiated a new South Church tradition:  a creative, intergenerational Passion play weaving together the narrative of Jesus’ final days with beloved tunes from popular musicals.  This year’s Passion play celebrates the vocal and theatrical gifts of church members ranging in age from two to eighty-eight!

In reflecting on the Passion Play Carlos says: “The gift of working with others to tell the story of Christ allows for us to marinate in the life and teaching of Jesus in a different way.  Drama allows us to engage in the story of our faith with the fullness of our senses - sound, visual, touch and smell.”
