Embrace the Role you were Born to Play!

Embrace the role you were Born to play!

“I’m going to my friends house for a Seder dinner this year,” I told my church friends. What’s Seder they asked? “The story of Passover,  which was being celebrated at “the last supper, and made famous by The Holy Bible and Leonardo DeVinci.” 

“Oh yes, the story of the Red Sea parting,” they concurred. “Well there’s more to the story than that,” I explained.” Before the Israelites had gathered their belongings and headed towards the land of milk and honey, Pharaoh had refused to let them leave, even though the Egyptians faced 10 plagues because of his refusal. The last plague brought devastation to the country, but had a desirable outcome for the Hebrews. The plague: the death of the first born sons of each household in the land. God told Moses that the Israelite families would be spared, all they needed to do was to sacrifice a lamb and put the blood on the door of their homes so that death would Passover their houses. Today, and throughout history, the Celebration of safety from this plague is called Passover.” 

During this year’s plague, I often read the 91st Psalm which includes the words, “no Plague shall come nigh my dwelling”.  I told my mom about this and sent her a beautiful picture of the 91st psalm and suggested we should all be putting this on our doors. She readily agreed and said she was going to start the trend. Will you share this prayer of protection and put the 91st psalm on your door? Click here to share!

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; https://2020-oberammergau.com/history/– 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!
