The Garden of Gethsemane

The report for this room was never received.
The sister who was in charge of this room fell through her attic and broke her back – literally – thankfully she has no paralysis – just after the event.  I did not have/take the time to write a report. I will tell you the room (a foyer) was turned into a garden with borrowed plants of various sizes, some were raised on disguised end tables.  It was a dark room with spot lights.  There was background music.  The first year we used a paper mache’ rock like you see in one of the paintings. This past year an olive tree trunk was constructed like you see in other paintings.  The first year we read from the scriptures the section related to the Atonement.  This year the was a script written that I do not have at this time.  This is a very spiritual room. The music is very important and the atmosphere is important.  Oh!  Very important!  We also used a large painting that hangs in our bishop’s office of Jesus Christ praying in the Garden of Gethsemane.  There is a spot light on this.  You can see it as you approach the foyer from the hallway.
