Southern really knows how to celebrate Easter weekend. This past Sabbath, Southern held their annual SonRise resurrection pageant. It was a very big production with lots of volunteers and thousands of people coming through to see the story of Jesus being told on campus. While I had seen SonRise once when I was little, it was a long time ago, so I was excited to see it again. This year, I got to take part as a cast member. I was an extra, a traveler at Jerusalem’s gates. It was fun being able to dress up in a costume and play a small role in the production. I mostly stood at the city gates and welcomed people into the market place. It was nice getting a chance to see what being a cast member was like without the stress of playing a more important role. As the last group came through, we were able to walk all the way through the pageant and see all of the scenes. I was glad to be able to participate and I was definitely blessed by all of the scenes. If you have never seen SonRise, I definitely recommend checking it out next Easter weekend.
The school year is quickly coming to a close, with just one and a half weeks of school left. I can see myself starting to become lazy, not wanting to do homework or study as much. Like every school year, I know that I can press on with God’s help and bring the semester to a good finish. I know that in the end, I will be glad if I stay focus and keep pushing through until the end. Just a few more days, and I’ll be done.
