Mary of Nazareth lived a dangerously demanding, yet holy life, She knew loneliness and poverty and endured extreme hardships of faith while maintaining a close relationship with God. During the crucifixion she knew raging and numbed pain that challenged her sanity. But her joy was overflowing after the Resurrection. Her story provides powerful information about God's sovereignty in the universe toward those who believe in Him and seek Him.
Based primarily on the gospel of Luke, the sole New Testament writer to interview and consider the female point of view, this dramatic monologue comes complete with an Order of Worship. It provides powerful insight into Mary's suffering and, likewise, the joy she felt from her conquering on. The presentation is divided into five sections, making it possible to use as a five week series allowing five different women to participate instead of just one. It also provides hymn suggestions that help to amplify the monologue.
This easily yet effectively prepared service offers a profound experience any time during the Lenten season.
