A Harvest Tale - Comedy

Written in light-hearted rhyme, this "fable" type skit openly shows the concept of "reaping what you sow."  A mother has 3 children who like to play and laugh but when it comes to work, only one of them sees the benefits of balancing work and play.  The other two like to complain and whine, while at the same time receiving all the benefits of someone else's hard labor. When economic times get tough and putting food on the table becomes even harder, a wise mother gets an idea: she tells each of her children to plant seeds in a garden and nurture it and watch it grow.  But, she warns: they will reap whatever they sow.

Themes: Reaping what you sow; fruits of your labor; people want reward without work; "good deeds" & blessings; laziness; rewarding hard work

Flower Power - Comedy/Drama

This skit is a take-off of the "Flower Power Peace Movement" of the 60's & 70's, and uses flowers as actual characters to symbolize our need for God's peace, love, healing and protection in our lives today. 

The skit opens in Garden Paradise, home of the Master Gardener, caretaker of all flowers.  Blue Bonnet and Daisy have decided to launch a protest against all florist shops, holding up signs that read "We shall not wilt!" and "Flowers were meant to grow free!" They want to send messages to the florists and their supporters, letting them know they are tired of seeing innocent flowers sent to their deaths.  Says Blue Bonnet, "How many more flowers have to shrivel up and die as part of these "arrangements"?  She wants to put an end to the senseless killings.  Meanwhile, AWOL flowers Black Eyed Susan, Baby's Breath and Wall Flower escape to the Garden Paradise, in search of the Master Gardener, if he even exists. They are seeking healing and shelter from the flower shops they've escaped from.  They long to live in a meadow where they can be free but question whether or not such a thing is possible for wildflowers like them. It is up to Blue Bonnet and Daisy to convince them of the love, peace and harmony the Master Gardener can bring into their lives.  

Using song bits, and phrases & references from the 70's, as well as combining both humor and drama, this skit will resonate with you in one way or another.  Perhaps you're a fan of flowers or the 70's, or just need to be reminded of God's love and peace.  In any case, this skit will make you think, smile and thank God for his involvement in your life.

 

Themes: God's peace; the difference God can make in our lives; health & restoration; seeking God; healing from painful experiences; God's protection, love and comfort; God's acceptance of us just as we are

Free At Last - Comedy

After a night at youth group, Matt and Molly believe they have stumbled upon one of the greatest concepts ever: Freedom in Christ.  However, their interpretation of what this freedom means is not exactly the real meaning of the concept.  They believe that being free in Christ means they are free to do whatever they want, whenever they want to do it, without any consequences.  They look forward to their new freedom in Christ because to them it means not having to do anymore chores around the house, spending their allowance on all the junk food they want, and getting even with past bullies.  Their neighbor, Wilson, tries to explain the correct meaning of spiritual freedom but the teens are too excited thinking of their own definitions and what that means, to heed his advice.

The Cure - Comedy/Drama

Dr. Chase, a hot shot young doctor, implies that her colleague, Dr. Nora, may be too old to continue to practice medicine. But when the Administrator finds fault with some recent case files, the finger seems to be pointed in Dr. Chase's direction.  It seems Dr. Chase was so eager to cure the symptoms, she often overlooked the underlying cause of the symptoms. For instance, what should have been a simple prescription for Mother-in-Law-itis (when the mother-in-law overstays her welcome) turned into a trip to a heart specialist, a bone doctor and enrollment in an anger management program.  It seems "book smarts" isn't the same as life experience, and sometimes you have to look past the symptoms in order to find the cure.  Therfore, the Administrator assigns Dr. Nora to a be a medical mentor for Dr. Chase to help teach her what the medical books can't.  However, both doctors realize they have a lot to learn when a friend of Dr. Nora's shows up for an exam and is diagnosed with a terminal illness called Mask disease: hiding behind a mask so others won't find out about your past or who you really are. In the end, both doctors wonder why it took them so long to find a cure for the disease and speculate on whether or not it's too late to help Dr. Nora's friend.  

This skit uses the medical field as a metaphor for sin and spiritual healing.  It reminds us that we all have problems, we all need each other, and that spiritual healing can only happen if we are open and honest with ourselves and others.

Themes: Healing past hurts; judging others; supporting one another; mentoring; never too old or young to learn something new; reaching out to help others; hiding behind masks; exposing sin; redemption
