Planting Seeds: A Collection of Sermon Starter Sketches
CSS Publishing, 2005 - 110 pages
Seeing our thoughts and feelings acted out in a drama is a powerful experience. We identify with the hopes and dreams as well as the frustrations and failures of the characters we watch ? they hold up a mirror for us so we can see the things about ourselves we often overlook. With this compelling anthology of 24 sketches and monologues, you can open the eyes of worshipers to God's truth and grace while planting seeds of change. Each scene is about five minutes in length and serves not only as a potent visual illustration but also helps the congregation receive and retain the major themes presented in the sermon. Appropriate for any denomination and audience, these easy-to-stage pieces utilize small casts and can be performed in any setting with minimal costumes and a few simple props, making them accessible to church drama groups of all sizes. In addition to sermon starter sketches, there are dramas appropriate for women's and men's retreats, and several monologues.
