Boy on the operating table tell surgeon that Jesus is in his heart, and he makes a difference

Sample of script:


TIMMY, age 8, is wheeled into an office, accompanied by his parents. SURGEON shakes hands with the parents, then squats down beside the boy.

SURGEONTimmy, tomorrow morning, I'll open up your chest and...

TIMMY(interrupting)You'll find Jesus there.

SURGEON(patiently)An operation is needed to find out how much damage has been done...

TIMMYBut when you open up my heart, you'll find Jesus in there.

SURGEON looks at PARENTS, who stand quietly.

SURGEONAfter the surgery, I'll sew your heart and chest back up and I'll plan what to do next.

TIMMYBut you'll find Jesus in my heart. The Bible says He lives there. The hymns all say He lives there. You'll find him in my heart.

SURGEONI'll tell you what I'll find in your heart.(standing)I'll find damaged muscle, low blood supply, and weakened vessels. And I'll find out if I can make you well.

3.TIMMYAnd Jesus too. He lives there.

PARENTS wheel TIMMY out of the room.

Just before he exits, Timmy shouts:


SURGEONWhat is it?

TIMMY offers a tract.

TIMMYPromise me you'll read this before the operation.

SURGEON nods perfunctorily. When TIMMY is wheeled away, SURGEON stuffs the tract in his pocket before following them out, shaking his head with disapproval.

SCENE 2: POSTOP: Stage is divided into a DOCTOR'S OFFICE & HOSPITAL CHAPEL. Action swings back and forth between them.OFFICE: SURGEON, dressed in scrubs, enters his office and records his notes into a handheld tape recorder.

SURGEONDamaged aorta, damaged pulmonary vein, widespread muscle degeneration. No hope for transplant, no hope for cure. Therapy: painkillers and best rest. Prognosis...(pause)...death in one year.

SURGEON stops the recording. Pause. Then shakes his fist at heaven.

SURGEONWhy? Why did you do this? What kind of a God puts a boy like that here, puts him in this kind of pain, and curses him to an early death? Why?
