SummaryThe news bulletin format is a brilliant way to put across Bible accounts in church and schools without the need to embellish them too much.  The events of Pentecost are dramatic in themselves but using this format serves to highlight the effect that the wonderful events of Acts 2 must have had on the community in Jerusalem.

Purpose: To make the audience -- especially the men -- reconsider their priorities and their relationship with their "Father". Key words: Father's Day • Dad • Memories • Parents • Success • Couples

Summary: God’s Court is a Halloween play or a fall festival play.  The plot and characters in God’s Court were suggested by the young teens I had Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. So they represent what sins they were most aware of and concerned with. I wrote the story and we refined it together. The shadow figure was played by the smallest child at their suggestion. The character has no lines.  Costumes are optional for everyone but the shadow figure. Her costume was a dark drape with eyes cut out. She was both spooky and added comic relief.
