              A Story Of Decisions People Make About God
                       Based on the Columbine Tragedy

Few of us will forget what happened at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado on April 20, 1999.  We're
troubled by what happened there that day.  But we also want to know why it happened.  What caused these
two individuals to take such extreme measures to express what they were feeling inside?

I was moved to view this tragedy from a spiritual standpoint.  A person's relationship with God affects their
outlook on life as well as their ability to cope with it.

It's Not Too Late is a Christian play, a musical / drama based on the Columbine tragedy, is a story of
decisions people make about God.  It takes place during a typical day in a high school.  It tells the story of Katie
Smith, a new student in school, as she struggles to fit it, to make a friend or two, and learn a few things about
life in the process.

Katie makes friends with Lisa Caldwell, a compassionate, committed Christian.  Lisa tells Katie about the
importance of having a personal relationship with Jesus.  But Katie also meets Jason Holmes, a rebellious,
arrogant, angry young man who hates God and those who believe in Him.

The play ends in tragedy.  Jason acts on his anger and kills several students including Katie and Lisa.  But the
focus of the play is not on the tragedy.  It is on the decisions people make about God and the consequences of
some of those decisions.

Some Facts About This Play Play

The most important decision we make in life is the one we make about God.  The path we choose to take,
especially the choice we make about God, has enormous consequences for our lives and for the lives of
others.

The Bible says that
"Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgement, so Christ
was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people;  and he will appear a second time, not to
bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him."
 (Hebrews 9:27,28, NIV).

This Christian scripts message is powerful. It's too late for some to take a different path in life.  But
it's not
too late
for you.


This Christian play was originally performed by members of the Niwot High School Bible Club (Niwot,
Colorado) and students from Longmont Christian School (Longmont, Colorado).There were 6 performances
from April 9, 2000 through May 13, 2000.  Over 500 people saw the drama.  Many were moved to
re-evaluate their own relationship with God as well as the urgent need to share with others the truth about
Jesus and His love for us.

40 groups in the United States, Canada, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, New Zealand,
Romania, Denmark, the Philippines, Iran, Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Germany, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia,
