JADE 2014

1jade noun \ˈjād\

: an adulteress

When I first wrote this drama in November 2013, I wanted it to be a story that would speak of God’s love and forgiveness for His children.

After all, isn’t that what Easter is about? For God so loved the world.

5 months later, He is still challenging me to continually trust in His love and learn His art of forgiveness.

It’s my first time directing any drama and, needless to say, it was a rocky road.

Working in a team means compromise. There’s no two ways about it. You can’t be selfish and insisting on your way. Assuming you are the more creatively affluent is no excuse to be petty and demanding.

More importantly, always choose peace. Always. Even if it means giving in.

In the realm of shadow, we often perceive differences as threats.

Lisa Bevere

Differences in opinion and perspective is not only healthy but necessary in successfully carrying out anything in team effort.

On a more upbeat note, I loved every step of directing this play and I can most definitely see myself writing more original scripts.

Special thanks to everyone who made this experience memorable and the play a success.

Of course, the main point we were doing this for was to see people ignite a desire to have a relationship with Jesus and even if it was just one person, the last few months was worth it to see even one life come to know Him.

In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away!

Luke 15:7

God would go to great lengths to see ONE person open their heart to Him, should we be any different? Every life counts.

If you missed it, don’t worry, here’s a youtube video of it.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it happen 🙂

HAPPY EASTER FOLKS!

On a side note: They didn’t need to be, but their support means the world to me.
