For many of us, Christmas is a time of joy and celebration, a time to be spent with family and friends…a festive, happy time. But for others, the same holiday season only serves to underscore the loneliness,pain, and hopelessness of their own lives.

In our story, Susanna King’s bright spirit and love for life overrides her circumstances; you see, Susanna has been recently diagnosed with cancer. But in spite of bad news and challenging times, she lives with the joy of Christmas in her heart. This is an emotion-filled story, rich with heart. It comes alive with great new songs that are sometimes powerful, sometimes celebratory, sometimes poignant; sometimes happy, sometimes sad; songs that propel the story along while speaking to our hearts with the love language of God’s Christmas story…the birth of our Savior, Jesus. Designed to bring your music and drama ministries together, Shepherds and Kings proclaims a strong, vibrant message about the power of love—our love for one another, our love for God, and most importantly, God’s desire that ALL would come to know of His great love for us. Share the hope and good news of Christmas with your church and community this year, through your presentation of Shepherds and Kings.
