The backdrop of our church Easter play is Mt. Calvary – we need to find an easy and quick way to make light weight rocks. We need rocks piled at the base of the cross.

On Sunday, August 3, 2008; The Rock Church of Valdosta, Georgia held a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony with the Mayor of Valdosta and a Dedication Ceremony with the Secretary of the Georgia District of the Assemblies of God.

We had a nice reception after the service, but I didn’t take any photos. First, I was eating. Second, it is a rather tight-squeeze to get many folks into our church’s kitchen/dining room. We had fried chicken wings, deviled (angel) eggs, sandwiches (ham, egg salad, pimiento cheese, chicken salad), vegetable crudites, variety of cheese cubes, beverages (coffee, Sprite, Coke, iced-tea), and dessert (chocolate chip cookies, brownies, cheesecake bites, mini-muffins).

Church & Stage: Producing Theater for Education, Praxis, Outreach and Fundraising

Church & Stage: Producing Theater for Education, Praxis, Outreach and Fundraising

Church and Stage is a guide for people in churches who want to employ theater in ministry, and for theater people who want to create opportunities to work in churches. The points of contact between religion and theater are numerous, and Dean J. Seal offers guidelines for making the connection work no matter what level of experience or financial commitment a congregation brings to the task. The author, who has worked in the worlds of both church and stage, provides background on the historical and theological relationship between religion and theater. He then offers practical advice and guidelines for the use of theater in the context of ministry—from discussion groups to bibliodrama to play-going to ultimately producing a show. This book is a resource for ministers, lay leaders, youth groups, and members of the theater community who desire greater integration of faith and work.
