local stake is putting on a production of Savior of the World this week and next. Isaac, The Boy, and I went to see it last night.
The performance itself was kind of a mixed bag--that was to be expected, I guess, with such a wide variety of experience in our little community. Some of the show was great--breathtaking, even, especially in the second act--and some of it was a little rough.
But here was the interesting thing: regardless of the quality of the acting, the singing, the dancing, or the script, the feeling in the room was undeniable. It was a feeling that didn't come from any of those things--it came from a perfect God working through imperfect people. I know that Jesus Christ lives, and I felt that so clearly last night.
I'm glad we went. It was a beautiful way to start the Easter season.
(Have I mentioned that I love Easter? I do.)
