The Thorn

Oh my goodness gracious, I took our older kids (10 and up) to see The Thorn live tonight (Friday night) in Austin.  INCREDIBLE!!!  I HIGHLY recommend this.  If you live in the Austin area, they will have 2 shows Saturday, April 9, at 4PM and 7PM.  Their next 2 shows are Colorado Springs and Denver.  Think Cirque du Soleil, Christian style, telling the story of Jesus.  Passion of the Christ live with aerial acrobats, pyrotechnics, flames, fireworks, etc.  Acrobats flipping through the air, trapeze artists, reenactments of battles of the heavenlies.  Jesus on earth.  (Man, the guy who plays Jesus is a fabulous portrayal of Him.)  It felt like we got to know Jesus face to face, as a real live person on earth.  Crazy.

There was one scene where a little girl runs out to Jesus, and he picks her up and twirls her around in the air.  I started crying, as I felt like I was watching Chrissie with Jesus in heaven, yet it was here on earth.  Very moving moment, crazy incredible show.

Check it out if you are able to.  I'd love to know what you think!!!
