The Thorn is a visually dynamic and heart-stirring theatrical portrayal of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Not your average Passion play, The Thorn combines martial arts, aerial acrobatics and emotionally powerful performances that have been engaging audiences across the US for almost 20 years. To help bring this timeless story to life, The Thorn recruits large-scale casts of professional and volunteer performers who share in the heart of The Thorn. By joining local casts and a national touring team, we invite the world to engage with the ultimate story of love, sacrifice and redemption.
The Thorn will be presented five times the weekend of March 2-4, four in English and one in Spanish Sunday night at 7:00 pm. at the Hills Church in North Richland Hills on NE loop 820 at Meadow Lakes Drive. Tickets are $15 GA, $28 Reserved and $49 VIP, plus ticketing fees. Click the banner or here to purchase tickets.
“Look what I’ve got! It’s a Super bowl ring!” I looked up from the checkout line at Costco to see one of the checkers showing off a monstrous gold and diamond ring that is unmistakable to a football fan. I heard her ask the more than six-foot receiver-looking gentleman standing at the next counter what year and he said “1985.” That would make him a Chicago Bear and a member of a championship team that included Walter Peyton, Mike Singletary, Richard Dent, Jim McMahon and William “Refrigerator” Perry. Their opponents, the New England Patriots, were making their first of many appearances in the big game.
Two teams, who worked and sacrificed and contended for a shared goal and one achieved the prize. I tell you this to ask a few questions I’ve been asking myself recently. What are my goals? What prize am I contending to attain? And what am I willing to do, to give up, to strive with a group of like-minded people to achieve? Or am I just sitting in the stands, watching others? They feel like good questions to be asking as we head into January and a new year. I’m just wondering what prize you’re striving for.
For 88.3 The Journey, I’m General Manager Mike Agee.
