(4/3) SECOND DAY Testimonies Night (6:30 PM) @ DTLA/Little Tokyo JEMS parking lot (map)
The FIRST DAY is Good Friday, a day of the loss, sacrifice and the atonement of Jesus on the cross. The THIRD DAY is Easter, the day of resurrection of our Lord and the possibilities of new life He offers. The SECOND DAY – the day between Good Friday and Easter – wanders through the spaces between doubt/struggle/questioning/failure in the journey of the Christian faith. It is a night of creative real life testimonies that explores the themes of the SECOND DAY of Easter weekend.
SECOND DAY explores what faith looks like when you are faced with uncertainty. This night will showcase the real life stories and struggles of people whose lives have been ruined, challenged and found in Jesus Christ.
SECOND DAY PROJECT GUIDELINES: Each participant will have 3 – 7 min. to share a “creative testimony” of how you have lived by faith amidst the themes (doubt/struggle/questioning/failure) of the SECOND DAY of Easter weekend. The creative testimony must be both a.) creative and b.) real life testimony i.e. it must use an original creative vehicle (ex. spoken word/fashion/graphic arts/dance/music/vid/photography/etc.) that helps convey a real life theme/story of the person presenting. Within the 3 – 7 min. time frame, the presenter should combine a.) one part creative expression of their chosen theme, b.) one scripture and c.) one part verbal explanation of their theme.
#1.) chose a SECOND DAY theme (doubt/struggle/questioning/failure) that best relates to the story you want to tell from your life and your journey with Jesus.
#2.) select a scripture that explains your theme.
#3.) identify a creative vehicle to express your theme.
#4.) determine how you will best express creatively your theme v.s. verbally explain your message within the 3 – 7 min. timeframe.
