An Epic Production- Jesus at Sight & Sound Theatres®

Last year we had the privilege to see the epic production of Jesus at Sight & Sound Theatres® in Lancaster, PA. It was remarkable, breathtaking, and truly a magnificent production. We have seen many shows over the years at Sight & Sound, but this one really blew us away in so many aspects.

The sets are mind-blowing. Seeing the Bible come to life, and particularly the stories of Jesus in this way- with such breathtaking scenery, is truly a way to immerse yourself in the Bible like never before.

And now YOU have the opportunity to witness this phenomenal production with a special showing in movie theaters nationwide April 7, 9, and 11!

If you have always wanted to see a Sight & Sound show but weren’t able to get to their theaters, this is an amazing opportunity!

From the bustling streets of Jerusalem to the raging Sea of Galilee, JESUS is the musical stage adventure that has been seen by more than one million people. Filmed in front of a live audience, Sight & Sound’s spectacular original production is now coming to the big screen nationwide. Witness some of the most awe-inspiring, miraculous events as Jesus sets sail with fishermen, challenges the Pharisees and heals the hurting. Experience the greatest rescue story of all time as the Bible comes to life in movie theaters for a special Easter event – three days only.

Filmed in front of a live audience, Sight & Sound’s JESUS is the action-packed musical stage adventure that takes audiences on a miraculous journey alongside the most famous person ever to walk the earth and the everyday people whose lives he changed forever.

More than one million people have experienced the live performance of JESUS at Sight & Sound’s theater in Lancaster, PA. Now, audiences across the country will have the opportunity to witness this awe-inspiring spectacle at the Fathom Events screenings.

About Sight & Sound Theatres
Sight & Sound Theatres began more than 40 years ago in rural Pennsylvania, where a dairy farmer went from producing milk to producing live entertainment with a purpose. Today that vision has expanded to two state-of-the art theaters in Lancaster, PA, and Branson, MO, where stories from the Bible come to life on stage. Each production features Sight & Sound’s signature massive sets, special effects and live animals. Still family-owned, Sight & Sound’s 675 staff members write, produce, design and build the original shows, drawing nearly 1.5 million audience members from around the world each year.

If We Are Pro-Life, We Should Be Grieving

We can’t pick and choose which lives we are going to grieve. As pro-lifers, we have battled for years to be heard that all lives matter. Yet, it shocks me that in recent events, people are arguing over toilet paper, if we should really staying home, and all the ways this crisis is affecting “me.” Yes, the economy is scary. I don’t have the answers. But I also know that same mantra we have been shouting for years still holds true:

All lives matter.

I have heard first-hand accounts from those in the hospitals. People are dying. And others are struggling to save them. Where is the outrage now? Why aren’t we doing all we can to save them? Thousands have died, and many more will. Why aren’t we praying, acting, and grieving?

As Christians, we need to be consistent. We can’t pick and choose which lives to be vocal about. We must remember that as our comforts are taken away, someone is gasping for breath from this virus. As our normalcy is taken away, a family’s life will never be the same because their loved one has succumbed. As we argue over politics, a family has been torn apart because of the quarantine and they work on the front lines. Doctors and nurses are separated from families to reduce exposure to their own.

This isn’t about fear. It is about facts. People are dying. The numbers are growing exponentially. May we stand up for LIFE now and walk the walk. All lives matter.

I pray that we stop arguing. Stop the politics. Stop the rhetoric. And love each other well through this crisis. If we don’t have love, we have nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Cor. 13:4-7

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.” 1Cor. 1:1

We are just as it says, “a clanging cymbal” if we talk about lives but don’t share in the sufferings of those lives now being lost.

So today, I ask that we JOIN TOGETHER. This is our time as Christians to shine the light of Christ. People need. The world needs the HOPE only found in Him. They are searching and we have it!

Stop the negativity. And step up for life. Who is with me?

Homeschool Consulting & Mentorship

Now Taking Appointments!

“I am grateful for a Spirit-filled woman like Karen who I could discuss homeschooling and life within this new adventure of hers. I have been homeschooling for seven years and felt like I needed some outside perspective for my life and homeschool. I chose Karen because I love her focus on living for Jesus and I desire that for my life. I opted for a one-hour session with her via FaceTime. The hour flew by. The format worked well because Karen came to the hour-long session well-prepared after reviewing a questionnaire I had previously filled out. She listened to my concerns and questions and provided feedback. She prayed for me, encouraged me, challenged me, and gave me some things to think and pray about. Her insight and perspective were such a blessing to me. I highly recommend the consultation! If I ever feel the need to have an outside perspective again, I would do another consultation again. It was a great investment for me and my family.”

We Are Not at the Mercy of this Virus

Think about how much power this virus has in our world right now. Life is literally halted. Where I live, it is very prevalent and my state is expecting to go on lockdown today. Only essential businesses will be open. Everyone else is to stay home. Jobs are lost. Schools closed. All events canceled. College students sent home. Flights empty. Trips canceled. The list goes on.

That is a powerful virus. 

Imagine this tiny germ we can’t see has so much power right now.

Hospitals at capacity. Fear is everywhere. We are all watching this unseen virus. We all want to know what will happen to our lives which right now seem to be at the mercy of this virus.

Oh, how wrong we have it.

God has more power than this virus ever will. He spoke the universe into existence. He created the stars, the moon, and mankind. He holds those stars in their places. He makes the sun rise and set every day. He knows every detail of this vast world and beyond.

He has so much power. He has so much control. He is greater than our little tiny minds can ever comprehend.

Our lives are not at the mercy of this virus but are in His hands.

So, today I encourage you to remember, God has authority over this world. And over this virus. And over your life.

Trust Him. His power is magnificent. He split the sea. He rose Jesus from the dead. And that same power lives in us if we surrender our lives to Him.

It’s easy to get caught up in the news and sit at the mercy of this virus. But, today I am choosing to remember that this little germ has nothing on my God!

Corona means “crown” but I know who the King is and who is really on the throne!
