They Weren’t Allowed to Paint Jesus at a Public School, So These Kids Waited 3 Hours to Do THIS
These students of Allen Elementary School in Soddy Daisy, TN wanted to do something spectacular for their classmates in the school talent show. There was just one problem.
They wanted to do a piece-by-piece painting of Jesus to demonstrate how he “Paid It All” by dying on the cross and raising from the dead. With it being a public school, they weren’t technically supposed to do so. So they waited nearly 3 hours backstage so they could be the last act and forewarn the audience that they would be doing a religious performance in case anyone wanted to leave.
But those who stayed were sure glad that they did. Their painting turned into an insanely beautiful act of worship on stage, and it’s the best thing you’ll see all day:
Were there concerns that this was performed in a public school? Sure. But see the comment that YouTube poster Rachel Loomis left for those who were “disturbed”:
What a perfect response, Rachel! And kudos to these kids for waiting out the whole show just so they could put Jesus on display. Talk about saving the best act for last!
