Scene I

Ashley, Dorothy, Alex and Florence are sitting or standing around

Ashley: So Pastor Leyton, he says, “We gotta go build bridges!”
Dorothy: Bridges? . . . Like who at Ebenezer Church knows how to build a bridge?
Florence: For sure not me, I’m not that good at geography.
Alex: Well one thing I know is that . . . (does double take, confused) . . . “geography?” . . Mind telling us what geography has to do with building bridges?
Florence: Geography is the science that helps a guy figure out bridge building and weight and stress and all that stuff. Personally it's not one of my strengths, gotta tell ya!
Dorothy: Could’a fooled me Florence. . . . But there must be someone at Ebenezer Church knows how to build a bridge.
Ashley: Well, my Dad can do that with a flick of his wrist but, average people, . . . I think not!
Alex: Listening to you Ashley, your dad can walk on water.
Ashley, thinks: “Walk on water”? . . . Let’s see. . . What would the relative density of this water be?
Florence: My dad can walk on water. . if the water is frozen . . and if he is wearing skates.
Alex: I’ll just throw this out there but my guess is that Pastor Leyton isn’t talking about hockey.
Ashley: Your comprehension never fails to amaze me Alex.
Dorothy: OK, do we go back to talking about this building a bridge thingie?
Florence: Did Pastor Leyton say we were to each build a bridge or one big bridge?
Ashley: Has to be several bridges.
Florence: How do you know that?
Ashley: I heard him clearly say something about building bridges. Plural.
Alex: Plural?
Dorothy: As in more than one.
Alex: Gotcha. . . . What colour?
Ashley: Not sure, but he did give the bridge a name.
Alex: And that would be . . .?
Ashley: Love.
Alex: Love?
Ashley: Love.
Dorothy: Wow. So we got us a bridge with a name but without a bridge.
Florence: This is getting way too complicated.
Ashley: Makes perfect sense to me.
Alex: Doesn’t that prove it?
Dorothy: I have an idea . . Rather than a bridge, let’s get a nice Christmas present for Pastor Leyton.
Ashley: What could we get Pastor Leyton?
Florence: A clock.
Ashley: A clock? How would a clock have meaning?
Florence: My dad always says Pastor Leyton needs a clock to tell him when time’s up on his long winded sermons.
Dorothy: Now that is just wrong!
