Vespers: “Break the Knot”
Thursday, 7 & 8:30 p.m., Rodeheaver Auditorium

The upcoming Vespers drama “Break the Knot” depicts the journey of a teenage girl who is struggling with a specific “knot” of sin. With the support of her family and one of her teachers, she is able to break that knot and find restored fellowship with God.

Mr. Jeff Stegall, director of the program and member of the communication faculty, relates the play’s theme to Romans 12. “No matter what any of the students might be struggling with or involved in, Christ is sufficient for their need,” he said. “We hope people realize there are people around them in their dorms, in their society and in their classes who are willing to help.”
