Glad Tidings performs Passion for Easter

BANGOR Glad Tidings Church in Bangor is ready to present its Passion Play on April 6 at 7 p.m. A cast and crew comprised of church teens and adults has been preparing and rehearsing diligently for this dramatic event. Scene and prop construction have been extensive. Glad Tidings' pastor, the Rev. Ron Morris, directs the play. Years ago, when Pastor Morris was on the evangelistic field, he used the play on the road with a traveling cast. He is ecstatic to be producing it now in Bangor at Glad Tidings.

The Passion Play is a dramatic presentation of the life and death of Jesus Christ. Spectators will admire Jesus, the man of love, as He preaches in the streets. Then they will watch as Christ is treated with cruelty, hear His words from the Cross, and then feel the loss as Christ is crucified.

Pastor Morris, who plays the part of Jesus, said, 'It's the greatest love story ever told. Now and in the past, I've been reluctant to play the part of Christ. Who could ever feel qualified to step into his shoes? I speak about Him; that's my call. Talking about Him is one thing, but it is absolutely humbling to make what was real to Him an act for me.'

The Passion Play aims to be more of an experience than a show. From the moment you walk through the doors into the sanctuary, Morris says that you will feel like you are on the streets of Jerusalem. Characters will be milling around, and you will feel absorbed into the setting.

The Passion Play will be performed only once on Good Friday, April 6 at 7 p.m. Admission is free. Glad Tidings is located at 1033 Broadway in Bangor. For more information, call 947-0324, extension 15.
