An Easter Tribute

Yesterday, I had the privilege of being in the cast of the Easter pageant held yearly on the campus of Southern Adventist University. The several hundred actors make the biblical story come to life for the more than 10,000 visitors that attend each year. Here are some images I snapped while "out of character".
