Descriptive words such as "Incredible, amazing, worshipful!" That was the expressed opinion of individuals that attended the services held at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville during Holy Week and the Monday after Easter. The pageantry, solemnity, and triumph of the Easter story was vividly demonstrated as the BCF Music and Drama class led the congregation from the Seder table and garden, to the cross, an empty tomb and down the road to Emmaus.

With record attendance at each service, the BCF Music and Drama class taught by Voice Professor Kimberle Moon enlisted the help of faculty and staff to bring to life the events that happened before Christ was crucified on Calvary and then the celebration in the upper room when the disciples and others saw the risen Savior.

"Do we get it?" asked BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen during Monday's chapel service. After a week of special services, Kinchen referenced the two men on the road to Emmaus that were so preoccupied with discussing the events of the past few days that they didn't recognize Christ when he appeared to them. "We've experienced record attendance, sticky eggs, and the Easter Cantata is done. What do we have to show for Easter? Do we find ourselves in the very presence of God, just like the two on the road to Emmaus, so preoccupied with the process, that we don't recognize Jesus?"

In answer to Kinchen's probing questions and in response to the services held on the BCF campus for Easter, the reaction rang loud and clear, "He is alive and we get it!"
