The Thorn production is without doubt the best Christian production I’ve ever seen. It is professionally produced, and the story is so compelling. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
The Thorn has moved from New Life Church to The World Arena in Colorado Springs, and tickets are available tonight and for tomorrow. The Thorn will also be showing at Magness Arena in Denver on April 6-7, 2012 and at the Tri-Lakes Center in Branson, Missouri on June 2-16, 2012. The Thorn website is http://thethorn.net/.
Inviting friends to go see The Thorn is a great way to share your faith in Jesus. Twice when I’ve seen The Thorn, I was deeply moved to make new commitments for Jesus.
During this short term mission trip in Baja, we invited people all week to a play called “The History of Jesus,” which would be held at the end of the week at an outside basketball court. We didn’t know how many would show up. On Friday night, we were stunned to see 1,000-1,200 people pack the basketball stands and area around the stage. The people were so attentive and into the play. The co-leader of the trip, Arlo Serrano, played the apostle John, and he narrated the play as the team members acted out the parts.
At the end, we led everyone in praise and worship songs, and we had an “alter call” where people could come down to the stage and accept Jesus as their Savior. I hoped a few people might come forward. Much to my shock and delight, well over 100 people came down to the stage to accept Jesus. We gave them free Bibles, prayed with them and gave them a flyer with information regarding churches and pastors in the area. We also had a huge meal catered for everyone in attendance. To this day, it was the most amazing act of the Holy Spirit I have ever seen. It just felt so “Biblical.”
Our team left that night with unspeakable joy. I felt thrilled and dizzy from the experience. Most people on the short term mission team stayed up all night because they were so excited. As the sun came up, we had to pack up and drive to San Diego to make our plan flight later that afternoon. Many people on the short term mission team cried because they had to leave. A short term mission trip can change your life.
