What vow will you take? The Easter story.

By Jenny Morris | Bible Based , Faith , Inspiration , Scriptures

What vow will you take?

My friend told me she was going to a little village in Germany to watch a Passion play that is presented every ten years as a vow to God to keep them safe from the Bubonic Plague. “What’s a Passion play,” I asked. She told me it’s the Easter story where Jesus is arrested, put on trial, and crucified. “It’s such a sad story, not one I feel passionate about.”

“Passion in Latin means suffering,” she explained. The above conversation took place years ago, and it came to mind because this year is one of the towns anniversary years, and the world is experiencing a plague of our own.

The Oberammergau history  according to;– In the 17th century the thirty years’ war took place (1618-1648) in central Europe and was one of history’s most devastating. As a result of the war, poverty and disease was widespread and thousands died as a result of the plague. In the small village of Oberammergau alone there were 80 deaths. During this time of suffering the citizens of Oberammergau made a sacred pledge that every 10 years they would perform a “Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ” if God would protect them from the plague. Legend has it that after the vow was made, there was not even one further case of Bubonic Plague in the village and those town members that already were afflicted recovered.


Oberammergau passion play history – The promise was fulfilled for the first time during Pentecost in 1634 and every 10 years since, the villagers of Oberammergau have continued to implement their pledge with the exception of 1940 when the play was cancelled due to World War 2.

This tradition has continued over 4 centuries with only residents of Oberammergau permitted to actually take part. The participants devote a year of their lives to re-enact the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, the Easter story. All of the people taking part in the Passion play or as it is known in German “Passionsspiele” are ordinary people who carry on pursuing their normal everyday lives such as doctors, teachers, housewives etc. All the main speaking parts have always been filled by actors who were born in Oberammergau or have lived there for at least 20 years. This custom has remained throughout the 380 years since this world famous Passion Play was first performed and has become a part of their Easter story.

What insights have you received from praying about this virus? My go to Bible verse comes from Psalm 91

Whoever goes to the Lord for safety,
whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty,
can say to him,
"You are my defender and protector.
You are my God; in you I trust."
He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers
and from all deadly diseases.
He will cover you with his wings;
you will be safe in his care;

Wishing you and yours a Happy Easter!

Jenny Grace Morris Living the Faith and Inspiration ……

By Jenny Morris | Faith , Inspiration

As Raphael joined us, we began a deep conversation about God and the Bible.One of the themes in our church sermon that week was heaven. I mentioned the Bible verse from Luke 17:20-21 that says “Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”

Like many of us, we are waiting to pass on and then go to the kingdom. As he asked questions the verse from the Lord’s prayer came to me. “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”. I wanted him to know he could feel the presence of heaven right now.

I am grateful to have met Raphael. I continue to pray for him hoping love and kindness continues to find him well.

Ask Amazing Grace: People always ask me for money and I give to everyone. It affects my own income, what should I do?

By Jenny Morris | Faith , Inspiration

Q: People always ask me for money and I give to everyone. It affects my own income, what should I do?

A: You are obviously a very generous person with a big heart. I think its right to take care of others when God directed but not to the detriment of oneself. Each scenario needs to be prayed about for the right solution. Sometimes giving money is the answer. I support a variety of causes and receive requests from myriad organizations to help them too. Also, people on the street might ask or simply look like they need food and shelter. One year my daughter and I purchased food, water, hats, scarves, gloves and other items and put them in bags. We included a religious article about Home and everyone’s God given right to have a good place to live. It spoke about how to pray effectively and where to go for spiritual support. We handed them out in the streets of NYC. In addition, I might purchase food for someone rather than hand them money.

This story from Acts 3 addresses your question. “Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts.
When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.

Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. (NIV)

Isn’t this the real need for everyone. Its to know that God gives us what will truly bless us. Giving that lame man money would only benefit him temporarily but giving him the ability to walk and care for himself had long lasting value. We too can listen to God’s answer to what would best help each individual. God is the source of all good and when we direct each person to learning about God and His infinite ways to take care of all our needs, we will give that person the best gift in the world.
