The 500th birthday celebration on September 30, 2011 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Greensboro was a success.  Reverend Eric Posa openend the occasion with warm words of welcome.  Michael Servetus was born September 29, 2011, on Saint Michael's Day.

Nick Divitci did a commendable job of speaking about the history and future of the Servetus Project  and I talked about the journey with my calling to see this movie get made.

The Christianismi Restitutiocake was a big hit.  I joked that the fourth copy of the book had been found.  Previously only three extant copies were known to exist.  The cake was a Spanish Bar cake, in honor of Servet's native country.  It was created at Susie's Lovin' Oven, which you can find at  We also had a traditional Southern Scripture cake, in honor of his love of the Bible and insistence on a Scriptural basis for Christianity.

Many people enjoyed writing birthday greetings to Michael Servetus with a quill pen and ink.

The actors (see below) did a tremendous job bringing the first act of the script to life.  Two actors dropped out in the last two days and I could only replace one of them.  I drafted myself to do one of the multi-character parts.  It was a new experience for me and I was glad I had the script so I didn't have to memorize the lines.
