Coming Together to Tell the Story

Posted: February 6, 2011 by bethanyfirch in Young Adult Stories
The theme for General Assembly this year is “Tell It!”, and we are encouraged to tell our own stories.  As both of my parents are pastors and I used to lead the Worship Team for Disciples on Campus at Chapman University, I have an abundance of stories.  So I will tell you the story of one of my favorite church times from this year: the church Christmas play.  I wrote the play as a talk show interviewing the classic characters about their parts of the Christmas story.  I even chose the song that the cast sang, “Go Tell It on the Mountain”, to emphasize how important it is to tell the Christmas story.  We had about a third of the church (over fifty people) of all ages involved in the production, including many of our young adults, and it was an outstanding success.
