COLUMBUS GROVE — Church of The Good Shepherd will present “The Little Drummer Dude” at 10:15 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, at the church, 224 S. Elm St., Columbus Grove.
This musical is about the savior coming to the world as seen through the eyes of wisemen, a traveling band, King Herod, and a little Drummer Dude.
The Little Drummer Dude is always an assistant to the prestigious PTB (Persia’s No. 1 Traveling Band) and would love to play with the band, but is always looked down upon by his bandmates. When meeting the little boy Jesus, he feels he has nothing to offer this wonderful King, until Mary speaks up and asks him if he’d like to play for Jesus! This special encounter with the young boy Jesus helps the Little Drummer Dude to realize He DOES have something special to offer the King…it’s his music! We all need God and His love, whether big or small. And we need to allow the Holy Spirit to empower and enable us to share His love to the rest of the world!
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart!”
