Sample of script: Sketch 5 – Serving Jesus

all actors come on stage, talking excitedly

Woodie: You know the best thing of all in serving at the Main Street Mission was finding just how nice the people are, they are just like everyday guys.

Tracey: Yeh, I have to admit I was a bit scared about going down to the Mission at first, but like you say Woodie, those folks made us feel right at home.

Willie: I can't help feeling that I have so much, and those folks really have nothing. It bothers me to see the poverty, the sickness, the addictions.

Lynn: Me too, but really, don’t you think it should bother us?

Woodie: How do you mean, it should bother us?

Lynn: Well, seems to me that if it didn’t bother us we should be ashamed.

Tracey: Ashamed? . . What have we to be ashamed about? . . After all we did spend the day serving at the Main Street Mission.

Lynn: Yes we did, but then we got to go home to nice clean homes, enjoy all the luxuries that the folks on Main Street will likely never know.

Woodie: I feel for those folks too, don’t get me wrong. And I want to go back often to help, and to share what I have with the Main Street folks. But is there anything wrong in enjoying the homes that our families have worked hard for?

Willie: But do we deserve all we have when others have nothing?

Lynn: Exactly. How can we feel good about what we have, shouldn’t we share all we have with the Main Street people?

Tracey: You mean like sell our houses, our cars, give all the money to the poor?

Lynn: I’m not sure, but I think that’s what I mean.

Woodie: Well after being at the Mission I can see that I don’t need all that I have, and that means I am going to have to make some changes in my life. . . . But does serving my community mean giving away everything I have?

Tracey: Those are tough questions, aren't they?

Lynn: Seems like serving our community sure does open our eyes.

Willie: Makes a person think about what you want to do with your life.

Tracey: You mean like choosing a job?

Lynn: I feel like we need to be serving people who so badly need our help.

Woodie: But not everyone can work full time at the Main Street Mission.
