A Time for Christmas

I’m looking forward to December ’07, since we’ve set out to present A Time for Christmas, a dramatic musical that tells the story of one guy’s experience with the true meaning of Christmas. It’s a full scale musical, complete with drama, orchestra, effects and months of preperation. We’ve actually been working on it –slowly– since February. Music was ordered on valentines day. Orchestra members are already commiting to it. Choirs are in the ready. Calendars are filling up. It’s exciting and wierd to think about Christmas now, but here we are…

On a side note, I had a fascinating conversation with someone who said “I don’t like musicals that much” and then proceeded to list off all the musicals he loves — which includes everything but “Oklahoma”. So maybe he should have said “I don’t like Oklahoma that much”. Me neither, but you can’t deny it — that catchy tune gets stuck in your head.

I think a story told well is one of the best things we’ve got going for us in the church — in terms of mass communication, at least.
