Private Pain In Public Pews
The gutsy Private Pain in Public Pews pulls no punches. It is a compelling “straight talk” reading of life in the church pews.
The book and stage plays deal with church secrets and the private lives that hold them. It’s no secret the Christian church has been experiencing a period of turbulence. From the Pulpit to the Pew, leaders and laypersons are falling from their pedestals one after the next with scandals of infidelity, double lives and money obsessions. But the real secrets are embedded in the stories of pain behind these scandals.
“The play addresses what we all know has gone on in the church, but we’re too afraid to talk about,” says Spencer. “It’s dramatic, thought provoking and funny! A bit of humor makes difficult issues much easier to talk about.”
It was through Divine inspiration along with her background in counseling that ultimately led Dr. Spencer to write the book and adapt it into stage plays. “I was writing down some advice to share with a church member and when I started writing I literally couldn’t stop. Those jottings translated into a book, which was later adapted into the stage play”.
Whether you’re a churchgoer or not, you will be moved by the book and stage plays. With a clever balance of drama and comedy, Private Pain in Public Pews will give you a lot to think AND laugh about. It crosses all boundaries of traditional gospel theatre. It’s real, honest, and heartfelt. Don’t miss your chance to read the book and experience the show that will keep you on the edge of your pew.
