First day without tears. Time to pick up and move on. Worked hard to get order... Talked with Joel Allen at Riverside. Sent scripts to him.
going to help with their Christmas show. (writing) He wants something non-pageant-like. I'm definitely on the same page.

The act of recreating the life of Christ on stage from birth to death is an impossible task which does more harm to the gospel (in some cases) than good. We can never fully visualize the violent mercy of the cross. Every attempt we make is child's play. The shame of nakedness- we will never know in a play. The mutilation and cruelty of the beatings, the profane, disgusting sodomistic disgust of the Romans, these we must never downplay because in the deep recesses of this moment in history we find the substitution and the payment for our wickedness.
