This past Wednesday we participated in our UMHB's annual Easter Pageant. It tells Christ's story form birth to resurrection. Reading the story is moving, hearing about it, or listening to sermons on Christ's sacrifices are important and meaningful, but watching it, visualizing seeing Judas' betrayal, "Jesus's" getting nailed to a cross, the tomb being empty is just an amazing experience. Even better, is participating in this portrayal and knowing that you are helping bring the story of salvation to others in a enlightening way is such a blessing. Unfortunately, I don't have much pics of the performance, but here are the ones I have from the day as a whole!
|First we had to get all painted and put make up on to look more jewish and more dirty.|

|This building serves as the place where "Jesus" celebrates Passover.|
|Pictures with "Jesus". The person who plays Jesus is picked a year before and actually does a bible study with the "disciples" up until the Pageant!|
