The power of a psalm

I love the Psalms. My mother used to say the 23rd Psalm with me every night before I went to sleep. And my grandmother asked me to memorize the 91st Psalm and go over it whenever I traveled in an airplane.

One time, I was in an improvisational acting class in Seattle when Lilia!—a show about my grandmother—was first being developed. The teacher said, "I want to see how Lilia would behave in a crisis situation." He asked me to play my grandmother, and the other actors to play guests at a party in her apartment. He set the scene: There was a fire in the building and everyone was trapped.

We'd love to hear from you!
