Now where are all these people headed on a warm summer evening?
A graveyard chapel? You must be kidding?
Doesn’t really look like a funeral…
Actually it’s rather the opposite of a funeral.
More like a Resurrection!
Guests of honour arriving from the past: A 19th century district judge with his wife, greeted by a woman journalist from their own time; she too brought back from the dead to do one more scoop.
Must be an odd feeling looking at one’s own headstone…
So, what’s going on? It is a live history lesson: a guided tour around a 19th century graveyard. Represented by actors, some old prominent citizens are brought back to life for a short visit, to be interviewed and tell us a bit about their own lives, and the history of the town.
The resurrected old car they arrived in. (No use asking me for car details; I don’t have them.)
Another guy risen from his grave – local artist and art teacher John Hedaeus (1872-1967). I managed to find only two of his paintings on the internet. He also did some paintings in churches.
However, with a theme like this I can’t resist also “doing a Ginny” at the end (referring to my friend of the blog Let Your Light Shine), and finish off with a Bible quote:
“… we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you in his presence.”
2 Corinthians 4:14
