This Sunday, April 15, was the first day of Rev. Laura Mayo's sabbatical. Covenant members performed a dramatic reading of Bill Martin's "Second Comings." 

"The primary inspiration for this playlet was A. J. Langguth's Jesus Christs, a 1968 novel comprising a number of vignettes of the sort included in the performance. I do not have easy access to that book, but I have note cards from a considerably longer (and seriously dated) performance that I gave at Covenant in the 1970s in which I acknowledged a significant debt to the Langguth book, claiming approximate originality for only about 50 percent credit of the remainder. In the current version, I estimate that at least a third of the scenes are borrowed directly from that book, though condensed and tweaked, and that other lines may or may not be, or may come from poems, cartoons, or irreverent companions. As I noted in the introduction, I have mused on such scenes since childhood."

Players included: Jim Avera, Jodi Bash, Ruddy Cravens, Bill Martin, and Shannon Stewart.

Nancy Henry read the opening Call to Worship; the poem: "Heaven on Earth" by Kristin Berkey-Abbott from, Whistling Past the Graveyard. Pudding House Publications, 2004. Bill Martin read the scripture lesson.
