The intention of this play is to help participants get "inside" the story of the early Church as described in the first half of The Acts if the Apostles by focusing on the key figure of Barnabas. This play may be of particular interest to churches that are named for St. Barnabas, but is not just for them. It may be produced as the sermon in the liturgy on or close to St. Barnabas Day (June 11). It can be a "spring finale" production for teens and older children in Sunday School, or it can be done inter-generationally The opening words of this play are taken directly from Chapter 2 of Acts, and the rest are based on the activities of Barnabas described in Acts Chapters 4, 9, 11, and 13-15.
