“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him . . . The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.”  1 John 2:15, 17 NIV



God’s Favorite retells story of Job

Trinity’s spring play, God’s Favorite, written by Neil Simon, will take the stage this weekend, May 5-7 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fireside Chapel. With God’s Favorite, Simon interprets the Biblical spirit of story of Job as only he can. The production takes place at Joe Benjamin’s mansion on the North Shore of Long Island in the mid 1970s. One night a messenger from God enters to tell Joe that he is God’s favorite and that all he needs to do is renounce God to prove it. Both pointed and funny, this production is appropriate for those aged high school and up (due to language and content). Tickets are $5 for students/seniors and $7 for adults. Call the Trinity bookstore for reservations at 708.239.4702.
