Burden of Love


Burden of Love 

March 25th at 7:30 PM and 26th at 3 PM

There are so many hurting people in the world, people who have been mistreated, abused, or abandoned.  Too many feel lost, isolated, and alone, in desperate need of someone to genuinely rescue them with love and compassion.

Sadly, there are those who let their own hurt and insecurity become anger and negative aggression.  They lash out with verbal and even physical attacks on people they know nothing about, as if their words or actions could, in any way, fill the aching void or calm the fear they have in their own lives.

Even more frightening are those who personify evil.  They intentionally exploit, inflict physical and psychological abuse, and use other human beings as tools for personal gain or pleasure.  

Burden of Love is a timeless tale about how an individual can touch, heal, rescue, and restore people who are in desperate need.  It's also about the conflict between love and hate, trust and betrayal, and lies versus truth.

Changing the world, one person at a time, is a huge challenge, especially in the face of such pervasive hatred and evil.  It could only take one committed individual who has a desire...    a compulsion...   a conviction...    a burden of love.
