Potomac Gardens Seniors were treated to a play recently that was written by one of their neighbors, Helen Claytor.
“Closer to God” was presented to the community this December with writing help from another Potomac Gardens senior, Claudia McCormick.
“I got everybody to help me out and I thank God we did get a chance to get it done,” Claytor said after the performance. “It was a blessing.”
The story featured a man who wasn’t religious finding his way in the church thanks to special messages from Jesus and several angels. The audience was able to participate as well with rousing versions of “Come All Ye Faithful” and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” carols.
Claytor, who has published a book called, “Mystical Short Story Volume One,” said she began writing this play while visiting her daughter’s church. She says she is writing all of the time and will have another play ready by February.
