The “Ethiopian Eunuch” at PIU Chapel

SAMSUNG            I always enjoy it when our chapel speaker does something creative for the chapel message. We have come to expect that PIU prof Peter Knapp will not disappoint us in this area, and he certainly did not on Tuesday. SAMSUNG            He performed a dramatic sermon about the access (a PIU core value – accessibility) that Jesus provides to the presence of God to those who were formerly excluded as he dramatized the thoughts of the Ethiopian eunuch (Acts 8) as he had his encounter with Philip and Jesus through the reading of the book of Isaiah. Drama is a very effective way to preach biblical narrative and I am a little surprised we don’t see more of it in the church today.

Peter began chapel in more conventional dress (middle). Bill Wood (right) read the passage.
