by Peggy Sue Dunigan (Milwaukee, WI)

Pontius, a leader with a rather droll wife Phyllis, tries to befriend Mary and Joe in finding their son who was arrested without cause. While the couple waits for news of their son, a military recorder named Mark, that just happens to be the name of one of the four gospel writers in the Bible, rattles off biblical phrases referring to the nativity and condemnation of Christ with equal aplomb.
