For Thine Is the Kingdom

“For Thine Is the Kingdom” is episode #238 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Paul McCusker, and originally aired on July 10, 1993.


Courtney Vincent uses the Room of Consequence to see the results of her bitterness over losing her dream to be a ballerina.



Courtney Vincent is a young ballerina with a brilliant future. But on the eve of her big tryout for the state ballet company, she rides her bike across the street and is hit by an oncoming car. Her knee is badly damaged. Though she will walk again, all her hopes of having a career as a ballerina are gone forever. Courtney refuses to believe it at first, but she is finally forced to admit that painful truth. As a result, she stops caring about everything, her friendships, her family, even God.

Whit convinces Courtney to take a trip in the Room of Consequence to see how tragic her life will be if she turns completely from God. Courtney finally understands that just because one gift was taken from her doesn’t mean her life is over, it is far better to be placed in God’s hands.

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »

  • In the wraps of this episode, different music is played. The music is similar to the music that Courtney plays in the Room of Consequence (as an adult).
  • In this episode, the "wise man" (who said that our spiritual walk is much like a play where the actors on stage know only the scene they are in) that Whit talked about is C. S. Lewis.
  • This is Courtney Vincent's first episode.
