Family day out!. Good Friday. Wintershall brings Jesus to Live, Passion of Jesus Christ at Trafalgar Square.
Its easter time again, a time we are reminded of the Love of Christ for all mankind, its also my favourite Christian time of the year, when the whole family can witness the real life action of how Jesus died and the miracle of Him rising from the grave. Halleluyah!. My kids get excited when we see Jesus resurrected.
The Passion of Jesus by Wintershall
This year it holds at Trafalgar square, with over 20,000 people watching, over 2 performances at 12 noon and 3.15 pm, even the Mayor of London attends! . I remembered last year Good Friday, my kids, nanny and I took the one hour train trip to Trafalgar square to watch the 12 noon Passion of Jesus play, we got there 11.30am and my God it was packed with over 5,000 people already sitting patiently, it took us awhile to get a good spot but we managed to do so.
Surprisingly it was sunny, so hot was it that the kids had to strip off the layers of woollies I had on them, luckily I bought some fruit juice and biscuit’s and anyway the kids believed that God made the Sun shine cause He knew Jesus was coming to Trafalgar Square!.
The play was well scripted and I fell in love with Jesus and the storyteller who put up a believable act. For non Christians and Christian’s it is a wake up call and reminder never to forget what Jesus did for us. Jesus who knew no sin, sacrificed His life and shed His blood as the ultimate sacrifice so we might have eternal life, hope and victory.
For my children it is a reminder of the love of Jesus, what the power of Love is and how to appreciate what we have, as a family and that we have a God that loves us more than we can ever imagine. We were even very lucky as Jesus took the cross through where we were sitting. I told my kids if someone can do this for you then you have to make Him proud to be the best you can be for Him. After all we are all the Light of the world, bringing light to a world of sadness and darkness. It is because of Jesus that we are free, with Joy, with Peace and Hope.
Finally the show ended with the good looking Catholic archbishop Vincent Nichols whom I love for His integrity in defending the gospel coming out and shared the grace with us all. It was beautiful and the kids had time to speak with the Roman soldiers!.
All I will say is if it is too gory for them, they better stay at home next year and let people who need Jesus, who need hope, who are looking for a way out to see JESUS!. Or perhaps witness it better in Phillipines!.
As for me and my family, we love you Wintershall, more grease to your elbows and may Lives be saved and delivered as you take the gospel of hope round the globe. We are excited about this year and what it is going to hold, so if you havent been there before. Make it an outing date with your family and if it is freezing or chucking down with rain there is also livestreaming for the family to watch at home.
However, I must say, its nothing like being there physically. God bless you and HAPPY EASTER
