  • Cast Number: 2
  • Run-time: 6 minutes
  • Bible Reference: Matthew 6:25-34

Fear, worry, doubt. Why would God want His faithful children to be questioning His control? God takes care of the minutest details. Naturally, He would therefore see to the needs of His most treasured creation – you.

Key words: trust worry God in control cared for

Cast: This drama involves two people, a man and a woman. These people are the parents of a child in Grade 1, so the actor’s ages should reflect this.

Set: Bill will be sitting on a loveseat, reading a newspaper.

Sound: If possible, lapel microphones on the actors would be best.At the end of the drama, the congregation should be lead in the chorus, “Be Still and Know That I am God”. (Or, a recording of this chorus could be played).

Costume: Actors should be in everyday clothing.

Lighting: Regular stage lighting would be all that is necessary.

Sample of script:

Scene opens as Bill is seated in his chair at center stage. He appears to be quite involved in his newspaper. Lorrie enters stage right, frantic.

Lorrie, panicked: Where is it? Where could it be?

Bill, looking over his paper: Lose something?

Lorrie: No I did not lose something! I never lose anything! I just uh, (pause), can’t remember where it’s waiting for me., that’s all.

Bill: All right, makes sense. What exactly did you lose?

Lorrie: I didn’t lose it, I tell you!

Bill: Fine, Lorrie! Okay, sorry! What, then, are you looking for that you already know where it is but just seem to have forgotten temporarily?

Lorrie: Are you mocking me? I can’t believe my own husband is mocking me!

Bill: What are you talking about? We have been married for eight years, Lor. Of course by now I’m mocking you!

Lorrie: I should have known. I should have known that you would not have any interest at all in our child’s future.

Bill: What? Wait a minute! Now you’ve really lost me!

Lorrie: The list! I can’t find the list!

Bill, sighing: Not the list again! I thought you had made that list up when Brian turned two years old!

Lorrie: I did. And I tucked it away in safe place so that every four months I can revise it as necessary!

Bill: But, Lor, do you really think this list is needed? I mean we’re not exactly the first people to be in this situation.

Lorrie, shocked: Sometimes I feel like I don’t even know you anymore! How can you be so casual about this!
 

Bill: Someone has to keep their head through this!
