Elijah and the Prophets of Baal ~

I'm guessing you are wondering:
 "What in the world does this picture have to do with the title of this blog post?"

Each year, Ecole Goudel has several assemblies where the students recite verses they've learned, sing songs and perform skits. Tim, as Field Director and the resident sound man, usually attends... and he now has a number one, top-favorite skit, a couple of years running.

It is a "re-enactment" (I use that term loosely) of Elijah's confrontation with the prophets of Baal (found in I Kings 18)...

  • different students as Elijah, King Ahab and the prophets
  • the school's director as God (sending fire to consume Elijah's sacrifice - with the help of kerosene and a match)
  • Pink Panther as the bulls to be offered up
  • spectacle "spectators" as the Biblical specators
Go ahead - try and picture the scene,
With 400 or so children and parents watching!

One of these years, he really needs to get a video instead of these after the fact photos.

Can't you just imagine...
