In the face of difficult circumstances, it is easy to get discouraged or diverted from your goal. However, sometimes the only choice is to continue moving forward. (“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” — Joshua 1:9)
Because of scheduling limitations, the Our Jewish Roots filming crew locked in a full week of field production at Capernaum Village, located outside the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Usually the last week of October is mild in Texas, but not always. Wouldn’t you know… an arctic front decided to come through the area, bringing with it highs in the 30s, a strong north wind, and rain.
We needed two full days to complete our dramatic re-enactments inside a small structure that had no insulation, no water, no power… yeah, basically just a shack. Here is what it looks like on the outside.
But the interior appearance was a perfect setting for our Colonial-era dramas. Thanks to the artistic vision of our director, Kenneth Berg, great preparation from our actors, a talented crew, two propane heaters, and, of course, the indwelling Holy Spirit, we accomplished our task! (“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” — Matthew 19:26)
