Christmas video 14: Mary’s Song

Spoken Truth and the Bible Society have partnered together to tell the story of Mary’s journey to motherhood in a 21st century setting.  Mary’s Song is a spoken word poem and original song – enjoy!

I’ve used it with a couple of groups of non-Christian young people who I work with who really enjoyed exploring the themes from it.  Download the videos or the sheet music for free from here.

Easter Spoken Word

I loved Dai’s spoken word about Easter:

Easter is a funny time of year.  You come back from the Christmas holidays, you hit the ground running then all of a sudden the clocks go forward and you’re in April.

Now Christmas is known as the celebration of Christ … and though sometimes it may not be celebrated, the clue is sort of in the name.  But what about Easter? Some chocoholic Bunny and a sugar rush on Easter weekend…there’s gotta be more to the story.

When it boils down to it – Easter is foundational to the Christian faith. Who would have thought that 3 days would have been so key to the fate of humanity? And it’s all cos that tomb was empty.

This is my spoken-truth piece on the Easter story.  It is my hope that this video is used to help us re-visit the message of Easter.
