Sample of script:

Tracy and Robin come on stage talking:

Tracy: So anyhow, Pastor Bob told us we would need a minimum of six new leaders in the Sunday School department if we were to properly look after the growth in this part of the city. All I have is one possible, Mabel Arnold, and she has no leadership experience.

Robin: Well Pastor Bob said the same thing about music ministries, he says we need to move to an additional contemporary worship service, and you know how Pastor Bob feels about overworking people. So we need at least two new leaders in our area.

Tracy: Well, that’s all well and good to say, but where do these leaders come from?

Robin: Exactly, seems as though some people feel you can just snap your fingers and volunteer leaders come along, eager to serve.

Tracy: Fact is, it’s a new reality we are into, what with people working two jobs to make ends meet, pressures at work and at home. Just not as many people able to be volunteer leaders nowadays.

Tony comes on stage struggling to carry a big box

Tracy: Hey, Tony, can I give you a hand?

Tony: No, thanks for the offer, but I think I should have lots right here in the box.

Tracy, confused: Lots of . . . ?

Tony: Well, . . . . hands. Isn’t that what we were talking about?

Robin: Most people carry their hands on the end of their arms, Tony, not in a box.

Tony: Yeh, but these are for laying on.

Robin: You are planning to lay on your hands?

Tony: Sure am! Good enough for Moses, good enough for me I should think.

Tracy: Now I am confused. You are saying that Moses slept on his hands?
