I’m not going to blog anymore this week. I’m too busy.
I wrote a play once titled—not entitled—Hosea’s Song. Hosea’s Song will be produced this weekend here in The Big City and I’ll be busy with the rest of the rehearsals and stuff.
What’s it about? Thanks for asking.
Well, Hosea is an Old Testament prophet who was instructed by God to marry a local prostitute. Their marriage was to be a picture of God’s relationship with the nation of Israel. You can read all about it in the Book of Hosea.
My play is Hosea’s side of the story. He wasn’t very excited, as you can imagine—or was he? Suppose you were a preacher and had to go downtown to rummage among the street walkers looking for a bride? It’s a real good story. It went over well in Missouri and in Dallas.
Hosea’s Song has a happy ending. God loves the unlovely. He restores the fallen. God reconciles people to Himself. I’d appreciate prayers for everyone—the actors, the behind the scenes people. They’ve been working hard and I’m pleased to say they’re just great!
Thanks. I'll report next week.
