jan 14 | word becomes flesh: thoughts on theatre and faith |ron reed & regent college

Have you ever wondered where the roots of  Pacific Theatre's mandate lie? In this candid interview with Artistic Director Ron Reed you'll learn about a relationship between faith and art that lies at the core of what we do. Regent College's Tim Bratton brings Ron back to the beginning; to his decision to pursue theatre while studying New Testament Greek at Regent College. Ron talks about the relevance of theatre in our culture today, his personal experience being a Christian and an artist, and the correlation between faith and storytelling. 

"It’s not a coincidence that in theatre, you take the words of a script and you enflesh them—you live them out. If that doesn’t sound familiar to people, they haven’t read their New Testament lately. “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” [John 1:14] God wouldn’t have done that if it wasn’t the best way, and there’s an echo of that in my craft."
