A while back (early this year actually), I acted in a really special event: the Easter Twitter Reenactment. I played Jeriah, a Roman centurion… the one who led the soldiers who executed Jesus. A hard part to play in many ways, but one which I thoroughly enjoyed. I was able to personally experience something that is pivotal to my life, the Crucifixion, in a completely unique way.
This Christmas I am honored to be able to reprise that role… only this time I am playing Jeriah as a young soldier a few decades earlier. And his station is in Bethlehem.
How did Mary feel as she rode into Bethlehem on that fateful night? What went through Joseph’s mind as he searched for lodging, turned away at every door? How did the inn keeper react when the shepherds came to his stable, looking for the Messiah?
What if they could tweet?
