Pilgrims' progress

Next weekend's Youth Retreat is finally coming together. My co-leader, Dana, has agreed to take care of food; I'll take care of program. Arrangements are firming up otherwise, and I think this will be a success.

The theme is Christian Drama. We'll be working on translating Bible stories and Christian songs into sketches. The youth will be learning simple techniques of performance, as well as developing characters.

Ultimately, we're looking at puppet theater and other presentational things. And Easter Sunrise Service is, of course, on the horizon.
