TIME FOR DINNER PILGRIM"S ! A Modern Musical Adaptation of John Bunyan’s Pilgrims Progress in Serial Form PART 2 The Story of Champion’s Wife, Christiana and Their Four Son’s Journey LINK TO THE SPOKEN WORD AUDIO READ: http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/watchandlisten/play/babd11b8f Christiana then wished for an inn to refresh herself and her children, because they were weary. Then said Mr. Honest, There is one a little before us, where a very honourable disciple, one Gaius, dwells. So they all concluded to turn in thither; and the rather, because the old gentleman gave him so good a report. When they came to the door, they went in, not knocking; for folks use not to knock at the door of an inn. Then they called for the master of the house, and he came to them. So they asked if they might lie there that night? GAIUS: “Yes, gentlemen, if you be true men, for my house is for none but pilgrims. Then were Christiana, Mercy, and the boys the more glad, for that the inn-keeper was a lover of pilgrims. So they called for rooms, and showed them one for Christiana and her children, and Mercy, and another for Mr. Great-Heart and the old gentleman. Then said Mr. Great-Heart, “Good Gaius, what has thou for supper? For these pilgrims have come far today, and are weary.” “It is late,” said Gaius, “so we cannot conveniently go out to seek food; but such as we have you shall be welcome to, if that will content you.” Great-Heart: “We will be content with what thou hast in the house: forasmuch as I have proved thee, thou art never destitute of that which is convenient. ” Then he went down and spake to the cook, whose name was Taste-that-which-is-good, to get ready supper for so many pilgrims. This done, he comes up again, saying, “Come, my good friends, you are welcome to me, and I am glad that I have a house to entertain you in: and while supper is making ready, if you please, let us entertain one another with some good discourse.” So they all said, “Content.” Then said Gaius, “Whose wife is this aged matron, and whose daughter is this young damsel?” Great-Heart: “The woman is the wife of one Champion, a pilgrim of former times, and these are his four children. The maid is one of her acquaintance; one that she has persuaded to come with her on pilgrimage. The boys take all after their father, and covet to tread in his steps: yea, if they do but see any place where the old pilgrim has lain, or any print of his foot, it ministereth joy to their hearts, and they covet to lie or tread in the same. Then said Gaius, “Is this Champion’s wife, and are these Champion’s Children? I knew your husband’s father, yea, also his father’s father. Many have been good of this stock; their ancestors first dwelt at Antioch. Champion’s progenitors (I suppose you have heard your husband talk of them) were very worthy men. They have, above any that I know, showed themselves men of great virtue and courage for the Lord of the pilgrims, his ways, and them that loved him. I have heard of many of your husband’s relations, that have stood all trials for the sake of the truth. Stephen, that was one of the first of the family from whence your husband sprang, was knocked on the head with stones. James, another of this generation, was slain with the edge of the sword. To say nothing of Paul and Peter, men anciently of the family from whence your husband came, there was Ignatius, who was cast to the lions; Romanus whose flesh was cut by pieces from his bones; and Polycarp, who played the man in the fire. There was he that was hanged up in a basket in the sun, for the wasps to eat; and he whom they put into a sack, and cast into the sea to be drowned. It would be impossible utterly to count up all of that family who have suffered injuries and death for the love of a pilgrim’s life. Nor can I but be glad to see that thy husband has left behind him four such boys as these. I hope they will bear up their father’s name, and tread in their father’s steps, and come to their father’s end.” Great-Heart: “Indeed, sir, they are likely lads: they seem to choose heartily their father’s ways.” Gaius: “That is what I said: wherefore Champion’s family is like still to spread abroad upon the face of the ground, and yet to be numerous upon the face of the earth. Wherefore let Christiana look out some damsels for her sons, to whom they may be betrothed, that the name of their father and the house of his progenitors may never be forgotten in the world.” Mr. Honest: “It is a pity this family should fall and be extinct.” Gaius: “Fall it cannot, but be diminished it may; but let Christiana take my advice, and that’s the way to uphold it.” “And, Christiana,” said this inn-keeper, “I am glad to see thee and thy friend Mercy here together, a lovely couple. And may I advise, Take Mercy into a nearer relation with thee: if she will, let her be given to Matthew, thy eldest son; it is the way to preserve a posterity in the earth.” So this match was concluded, and in process of time they were married: but more of this hereafter
