JACKSON, Tenn. – Feb. 7, 2005 – Actress Vondria Bergen will present the one-person play “Spread Your Garment Over Me: Voices of Biblical Women” Feb. 10-11 at 8 p.m. in Union University’s W.D. Powell Theatre.
Bergen’s presentation will bring to life real people of the Bible who found hope in shocking circumstances. The characters include the well known Eve and Mary, as well as some lesser known women like Dinah, the only daughter of Jacob; Deborah the judge; the witch of Endor; Peter’s wife; Samuel’s mother Hannah; and the bleeding woman who touched the hem of Jesus’ garment.
Performances are free and a love offering will be taken following the Friday show. Church and women’s ministry groups are welcome to attend.
