Searle Many times we can be very brave with our spoken courage but when it comes to action we lose our strength. Saint Theodota and Saint Thomas of Dover are examples of the true faith and courage it takes to carry us through. Theodota lived at Nicaea during the reign of the Roman Emperor Diocletian in the Third Century. This was a time of mass persecution of the Christian people. Theodota was a widow with three children. The Prefect Leucatius greatly admired her and insisted on marriage. When Theodota refused to accept the pro- called, was a Benedictine the Priory of Saint Martin i~ In 1295, French raiders English Channel and priory killing everyone escape. Thomas, now veq and feeble, was the onl alive. When he refused to] one where the church were hidden, he dered. Over the years people began to admire and started to honor this man on August 2. In lish King, Richard II, rec ceedings for his posal, Leucatius denounced her and her three children as practicing Christians• In order to save their human lives they were ordered to make sacrifices to the pagan gods• When the family refused, Theodota, together with her three children, were burned to death in the year 304.

For the third consecutive year, five Lewisburg churches sponsored Marketplace, a five-day alternative vacation Bible School which recre- ates a Hebrew village during Jesus' lifetime. As in past years, the event generated an enthusiastic response among area residents, and 220 chil- dren spent "A Week With Jesus." Over 200 area youth and adults also assisted in various capacities. The village was erected on the grounds of Saint Louis Catholic Church. Other sponsoring churches were Lewisburg United Methodist Church, John Wesley United Methodist Church, Old Stone Presbyterian Church and Saint James Episcopal Church. Children were assigned in multi- age groups of six or eight to "family" Judas (Charles Higgenbotham, left) and Jesus (James Morgan) tents named lor the 12 tribes of Is- rael, each headed by an "eema" or mother. The children wore white to- gas and carried moneybags with "money" which they could spend in the marketplace. For two hours each evening they participated in family life and moved about the village, playing games, singing songs, hear- ing stories and seeing brief dramas about the ministry, betrayal, trial, death and resurrection of Jesus. In the marketplace the children had an opportunity to learn crafts typical of the time from a variety of artisans including weavers, carpen- ters, scribes, teatherworkers, metal workers, rope makers, dyers and bakers. They could also choose to make baskets, jewelry, and mosaics to take home or spend their "money" on candy made from honey, nuts, Jeremy Conner rides Charlie the donkey; Ann McClung leads. figs, dates, citrus fruits and other in- gredients appropriate to the First Century A.D. Other snacks provided were similarly typical of the time pe- riod. Also wandering about the vil- 15,ge, with claims on the children's money bags, were "beggars" and a "tax collector•" Several animals in- cluding a pony, a donkey, and some sheep and goats contributed to the village atmosphere. A worship service was held on the closing night with a Love Feast conducted by clergy and members of the five sponsoring churches. Grapes and homemade loaves of bread were passed back to the crowd in imitation of the Gospel story of the loaves and fishes, and the children made an offering of canned food and money to the Le- Tax-collector Lane Wagaman extracts tribute. wisburg Community of Churches Food Locker. The three coordinators were Katy Montgomery, Cara Roczniak and Libby Johnson. The sponsoring churches extend their appreciation to all of the many individuals and businesses who made marketplace possible.
