Next semester, as a part of one of his courses in the Department of Theatre and Dance, Dr. Don Sandley’s students will present “The Word Became Flesh” on campus and at locations throughout Birmingham.  It will be an uncut version of the Gospel of John.  The creative design team for the production will include Malyn Porter, Kendra Ball and Cassie Brown.    The title, of course, is drawn from that beautiful, mystical passage from John 1:14 . . . “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” 

The world has hope because the Word became flesh.  Merry Christmas, my friends.
