The Carpenter’s Gift
By BJ Smyth
Directed by Tanya Barber
Ruth and Isaac are experiencing all the wackiness that accompanies producing their church’s annual Christmas play, when a new hiccup arises—Joe, their carpenter, has fallen in love with Marie, a new church member. Scurrilous rumors begin to fly regarding Marie’s past, and people frown on the growing relationship. When Joe leaves town with Marie, Ruth and Isaac’s hopes for setting the Christmas play in a state-of-the-art stable are dashed! But why is that more important than their friend—the carpenter? Motives are tested and transformed as Ruth and Isaac learn the true joy of sacrifice that is the embodiment of Christmas.
