The Fourth King: Return To Bethlehem: The story is a twist on the traditional Three Kings narrative. King Kaspar II, son of the king by the same name, has come to Bethlehem a generation later seeking first-hand knowledge and eyewitness accounts of the events surrounding the birth of Jesus. Through a series of dramatic exchanges between Kaspar II and those gathered and sitting among the congregants, the birth narrative is brought to life in a new and intimate way.
Following each dialogue, musical flashbacks will occur in the form of original carols and songs composed and arranged by Danny A. Moore and presented by a 30-voice Shepherd Choir and soloists. Nationally acclaimed baritone soloist, E. Daryl Duff will play the part of King Kaspar II. Other guest soloists include Kris Blackthorn, soprano, Chris Young, tenor, and Hattie Elder, soprano. String, brass, woodwind, hand bell, and other percussion instruments, as well as organ and piano, will accompany the musical presentations.
One of the unique elements of this program is that it incorporates the traditional Celebration of the Christ Cake: “A sweet cake bespeckled with lighted candles.” King Kaspar II will present this cake in honor of the birth of the Christ Child, explaining the symbolism of all the elements that adorn it.
You are cordially invited to attend this poignant Celebration of the Incarnation and the reception that follows in the Fellowship Hall.
