The Festival of Nations kicks off another season at Dollywood, and so too, we begin another year of ministry among the Hosts and Guests.  In Chapel this first week we took a trip around the world-  opening with a children’s choir from Uganda, I was wearing my short Kurta from India, and we closed the service with Scottish Bag Pipes.

We used our 5 senses to explore the Passion story: the SMELL of Mary’s perfume as she anointed Jesus’ feet, the TASTE of the Passover bread, the TOUCH of the nails, the SOUND of the 2 earthquakes (one at Jesus’ death and the other when the stone was rolled away), and the SIGHT of the angel’s glowing appearance!
