In November 2018 we had the amazing opportunity to present “The Table” for the very first time to the local community around our headquarters in Oklahoma!
“The Table” originally started as an idea to find a new way to engage people in The Great Commission. The Awakening’s desire to use the arts to portray that message then came to life in the month of October as the writing process began. The vision stayed the same as rehearsals began, and on opening night we were believing God for big things! Big things like one of our interns praying with teary-eyed 10-year-old girl who wanted all her friends to know Jesus, and an auditorium of people looking to God saying, “Here am I, send me.”
“The Table” follows the lives of a doubting husband, unwanted daughter, striving mother and jealous sister as they fight to find their way through a world of struggle, all while leaving the audience to ponder one important question – will you go? Will you reach out to the world around you like Jesus asked us to do in Matthew 28:18-20?
In hopes, this all-original piece won't stay a one-time show for long, but will be presented for a second time in January before it is then taken to churches across the United States. Our prayer is that as "The Table" finds its way around the world, the heart of God will be portrayed to all people and they will be stirred to see the world around them His way.
