‘Handmaid of the Lord’ at Douglas MC for Syrian Refugee’s

‘Handmaid of the Lord’ will be presented by Douglas Mennonite Church and friends.

The greatest story ever told, the story of Christmas, told from a fresh, new perspective. Mary, the mother of Jesus, tells her experience which changed the course of humanity.

Combining the classic story with the classical elegance of the angel Gabriel, the sassy swing of the wise men, the energy of latin rhythms of the celebrating shepherds and the simplicity of a folk tune in Mary’s lullaby, you will hear it, as if for the first time. From the struggle of a tango as Mary and Joseph seek shelter for the birth of Jesus to the heart wrenching “Vocalise of the mourning mothers” after the vengeful Herod murders the infants of Bethlehem, the characters come alive as living, breathing people. The crowning glory is a full choir representing the chorus of angels and the people of the earth.

Ticket sales this year will be in support of the Syrian Refugee Fund.

Available at Douglas MC  from Mon. -Thurs. 9-3 Call 204 668-7432
