The Hedge of Thorns
Lamplighter Theatre Dramatic Audio CD
Inside Finnian’s café, the news is out: Martin has lost his job. Now he has to make a choice. The door before him holds the key to his future, but when he turns the knob, he finds nothing but another locked door. From a piercing experience Martin learns that locked doors are not lost opportunities, but new possibilities. John is determined to find out what is on the other side. And that which is forbidden makes his quest all the more irresistible!
Desperate to break through the hedge, he devises a plan that unknowingly places his little sister in perilous danger. In a moment of passion and disregard for his parents’ warnings, John does the unthinkable – and learns the hard lesson that there are grave consequences to crossing the boundaries that God has set for him. This unforgettable lesson has left an indelible mark on his life and will leave the same upon those who hear this story!
Character themes in this story: choices, consequences, obedience and boundaries.
A word from the storyteller of the Lamplighter Theatre Audios:
“My name is Finnian Jones. Allow me to invite you along on a journey of unexpected opportunities, exploration, and inspiration…to a place where anything might happen! Please note the sign to your left – ‘No eating, drinking, or small thinking beyond this point.’
Are you perplexed by a puzzling predicament, muddled by the mysteries of the mundane, confused at a crossroad of convictions, or wearied by the weight of the world? Then, my friend, I have just the prescription for you. Step with me into the pages of times long past, yet not so very far away. There are some people you need to meet: true heroes who faced adversity with courage, overcame obstacles through faith, grew stronger through suffering, and hoped against hope to receive what was promised. They will show you that you can live by the same hope…a hope that never disappoints.”
