I’ve been asked to Narrate a Nativity play on radio this year. I play the “Voice of God” and of course I’m very excited about the prospect.
Firstly I’m thrilled to be asked, because it’s not every day that someone sees you as “God” (Not even the cat) but also, I can let my ego run riot……..or can I?
In reality, I’m there to read someone else’s’ words in the way the producer imagines God to sound, so whilst I might think that God might sound like Brian Blessed on speed and the narrator should sound a bit like David Kossof, I must do as I’m told.
Of course the wonderful thing to which I look forward is telling the Parish Priest that God really is in his congregation.
