Hundreds Journey to the Cross at Campion »
On April 20, the Campion Campus hosted Journey to the Cross, a live reenactment of the story of Jesus' death and resurrection, including an interactive old Jerusalem marketplace. The production was performed every hour for six hours on Sabbath afternoon. Each performance was highly attended by both church and community members.
Assistant girls' dean Erin Johnson directed the presentation, with many Campion students taking roles as Roman soldiers, angels, and the thieves beside Jesus on the cross. "It was a long and busy day, but it was so worth it," Johnson commented. "I had an amazing cast and crew who gave me goosebumps during each performance."
Junior student, Nathan Bergman played the role of Jesus. "Even though it was just acting, it was still physically difficult staying on the cross, and it gave me a better understanding of what Jesus went through," he reflected. "I can't even imagine what He went through, and acting it out opened my eyes a bit more to what He did for us."
