The Passion Play

I have not posted in six days! I can feel it too! I have so much I want to say about the past few very busy, but wonderful days.

Saturday and Sunday were the first two nights of the Passion Play at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church. Being the actress that I am, I just enjoy every moment. There is just something so glorious about standing beneath the spotlight and singing and acting. But to do so for the Lord is the greatest part! I have the honor to play Mary Magdalene who was originally demon possessed by seven demons. You can just imagine what I get to do if you've not been there to see. You can imagine my face covered in dirt (I use random neutral colors of make-up), my hair in a rats nest (it's so lovely), and dirty clothes (very dirty). My adrenaline is at an all time high as I come out screaming, falling, clawing. I am finally brought before Jesus (by two brave young men... I've accidentally hit them both several times) and fall at His feet where He heals me. Sometimes it honestly takes my breath away as I imagine that I am truly before Jesus. I stand there in front of hundreds of people "acting" but deep down I feel Jesus in my spirit reminding me that I too have experienced His power. I may not have been demon possessed, but I was lost and He found me. So jumping up and down after being healed isn't always acting!

The play is just so amazing. Flowing through the ministry of Jesus to the heart-wrenching Crucifixion, the Resurrection and the last scene in Heaven. It brings tears to my eyes when I see the our wonderful actor playing Satan being dragged to Jesus and being forced to bow down. There is just so much underling in that short part of the play. For me evil is officially defeated and I can't wait till that day!

There is simply so much that goes on in the play, it astounds me. Lighting, sound, behind the stage, actors, singers, caregivers, greeters, costume designers, set constructors, video operators, prayer warriors... etc, etc. When all the pieces are together, it is an unbelievable perfomance, with the sole purpose of winning souls for the Kingdom of God. What a joy it is to be able to participate!

So that is where I've been! Rubbing dirt on my face and knotting my hair, all for the glory of Jesus!

If you've not seen the play and if you live anywhere within a couple hours, come out this Saturday or Sunday night! Doors open at 5 and the play begins at 6! You don't want to miss it! I know I sound like a commercial, but I'm serious! It is great!


  1. Katy, I always enjoy your posts so much! I don't always comment, but I am a follower. I would like to say thank you for the great job you are doing in the play. It's obvious you put your heart into what you're doing and it's a blessing to watch. I love the pic you have on here of the final scene. Who took it? Very powerful pic, but as you say, the entire play is very powerful. I feel blessed to be a part of it, with so many talented people. And how can anyone watch the reenactment of Christ's Passion without being stirred? Not me, that's for sure. Keep up the great work, both in the play as well as your blogging!

  2. Thank you so much Ms. Janice! You are so kind! You are one of the ones that do the hard work! You make it look good! Michele Cordray took the picture of the last scene. It is such a great pic! The Passion Play is such an amazing thing! I'll be sad when it's over! Thank you again for taking the time to read my rambling blogs! I appreciate you so much!
