The Stage
The scene will be set up like a town with a church, a bar, a jail, some houses and a sidewalk that outlines the whole scene. The church and the jail will be set up so you can see into them the rest of the buildings will be 2D with doors.

1st Verse
There is a candle in every soul
Some brightly burning, some dark and cold
There is a spirit who brings a fire
Ignites a candle and makes his home.

The first verse starts out with people at church service. Some will have candles that are lit and others candles will not be. A man will kneel at the altar and weep (his candle is not lit) as the third line begins the intercessory prayer warrior will be prompted by the holy spirit to kneel down beside the man and speak to him. As the final line in verse 1 begins the two men will bow to pray together and the Holy Spirit will blow on the man and his candle will become ignited.

2cd. Verse
So carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the helpless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle and go light your world

As the verse begins some of the people will come out of the church. Christian #1 will come out carrying a bag of bibles and he will go over to the jail. The holy sprit is right behind him moving him in the right direction. He walks into the jail and offers prisoner #1 a bible. The Holy Spirit is behind prisoner #1 prompting him to take the bible. As the prisoner is reaching for the bible he abruptly pulls his arm back and shakes his head no. (His candle remains unlit) Christian #1 goes to the next prisoner and offers the bible and the prisoner takes the bible. He shakes Christian #1 hand and as he does the Holy Spirit blows on the prisoner and his candle ignites.

3rd Verse
Frustrated brother, see how he’s tried to
Light his own candle some other way
See now your sister, She’s been robbed and lied to
Still holds a candle without a flame

4th Verse
So carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the lonely, the tired and worn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world


The Holy Spirit Following Christian #2 as he walks down the sidewalk and meets the stranger. They converse and Christian #2 points towards the church as if he is inviting the stranger to come the stranger declines and walks into the bar. Christian #2 continues walking and runs into the pregnant woman and her boyfriend who are violently arguing. Christian #2 tries to calm them and intervene but the boyfriend pushes him aside and they continue down the walkway. Christian #2 is very saddened at this. He continues to go his way to the church.

5th Verse
Cause we are a family, whose hearts are blazing
So lets raise our candles and light up the sky
Praying to our Father, in the name of Jesus
Make us a beacon in darkest times

6th Verse
So carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the helpless, deceived and poor
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world

Christian #2 and members of the church walk in and start to worship and pray through verse 5 and 6. At the end of 6 they go back out into their community.

7th Verse
Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the helpless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle and go light your world
Take your candle and go light your world
Take your candle and go light your world

A group of youth is walking when one of them notices a homeless person on a bench by the prompting of the Holy Spirit. The youth says something to the others and they run to the house and come back out with shoes a blanket and a cup of coffee for the homeless person. The person is overwhelmed with gratefulness at their deed. The youth and homeless continue to converse. Christian #1 goes back to the jail for another visit and finds the police officer and Prisoner #2 reading the Bible.
The police officer is also a Christian. Together Christian#1 and police officer talk and answer questions that prisoner #2 has. The Prisoner makes a decision to follow Christ and they all bow their heads and pray. Back outside the Christian pregnant woman finds the pregnant woman from before sitting alone and crying. She sits down beside her and consoles her. As all this takes place the Holy Spirit moves around and blows on them one after another and their candle ignites. The 7th Verse might have to be repeated. That is why I chose to have a singer with a guitar so that things could be adapted if needed be.

I can see this happening - human videos are really good and sometimes move people into something they didn't realize they are ready for. One error that I see - Alter is when you adjust things (like a hem) - Altar is where we kneel before the Lord. Nice job!
