Sower and the Seed Series

  • Cast Number: 6
  • Run-time: 40 minutes
  • Bible Reference: Matthew 13:1-23

5 part series, (suitable for VBS or children’s programs), on the parable of the Sower.
The reporters at CNN, (which in this case is Country Nature Network), are connecting with Kermit the frog and Miss Piggy to dig into just how and why we sow seeds.
The reference for:
Day 1 why does God plant seeds and how God’s love is a seed in each one of us.
Day 2 is about Miss Piggy sowing seeds when along comes a crow who is eating up the seeds. The reference is developing spiritual roots and having God’s love grow in us.
Day 3 has Miss Piggy trying to grow a rock garden, (where real rocks are the anticipated crop), while the emphasis in Kermit’s life is being a “green” farmer following good environmentally sound practices. The theme here is knowing what we need to grow in our lives and having God’s love growing in us.
Day 4 has Miss Piggy facing the challenges of weeds in her garden. The theme here is dealing with the challenges to our faith and how Jesus helps us face those challenges.
Day 5 has reporters at CNN are arguing over whose desk be in a prime location for TV. The focus in this segment is harmony, living and working together in harmony and God’s love.
The series includes some original music lyrics.

Sunny: Good to be with you again Stone, another jam-packed program here on CNN, a busy day on the agriculture beat for sure. . . Starting off with the markets, what does your ticker tell you Stone?

Stone, hand over heart: Well, Sunny, fact is I have been having a few chest pains but I think it may be the extra salsa on my soft meat burrito down at Happy Hank’s Spiceorama at noon today . .

Sunny, embarrassed: Uhhh, no, wasn’t asking about your heart, Stone, I was referring to the stock markets.

Stone: Oh that . . of course . . well, fact is Sunny, beets are up, carrots are down, coleslaw is just kinda laying there.

Sunny, confused: Coleslaw? . . . Since when do we have a stock report for coleslaw?

Stone: You saying there should be no stock report for coleslaw?

Sunny pauses, holds hand to ear, holds up hand to silence Stone
