Bible school debacle
On year our church took on a summer project that was way beyond its abilities and resources. A production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. It was truly ecumenical. This little country church (Lutheran) had evangelicals, mainline Christians, Catholics and one Jewish boy working together to make it happen. And happen it did. A young man’s talent was discovered and his theater career launched. On the negative side, tempers flared and enemies were made. One person has fond memories of this episode, and another feels used and abused and bitter.
