OK, I know that last week I said I wanted to be a green haired prairie skirt wearing artist, but I think instead I want to be a prop mistress for a theater. Well, I guess I am kind of already that. I went into the prop/storage room at church today looking for an old set I want to re-use. I like to go in here. I never know what I will find. For instance. Why in the world would we save an old toilet? If it was replaced by a new one, why would we still want the old one?? What could I do with it?????
Some old columns, we have used these for alot of old testament stuff. I used them as pharoah's palace when the kids did the story of Moses. They have been painted a few zillion times. I think I had hieroglyphics on them.
These trees. We took them off the stage because they looked so bad. So, why are they being saved?? Pack rat central. Is that a rule of churches? Never throw anything away?
OH! My red Christmas candles. See them? They are 6 feet tall. I had them onstage with real fire. They were totally cool and very smokey. It was like being at a rock concert. OK. A free bracelet proclaiming your brilliance to whoever can think up a good way for me to re-use those things. Start thinking.
A tree, a cross and a throne. Look hard. See the red velvet throne behind the cross? The throne of God.
It's all in how you look at it.
