Studies have indicated that 75% of what an audience learns and remembers is a result of what they see, while 13% comes from what they hear. Drama puts both together and prepares the audience with a vivid sermon illustration that kindles their anticipation of the pastor's sermon.

The majority of these mini-dramas run 3-5 minutes in length, with a few as long as 7 to 10 minutes. Each introduces the theme of the gospel lesson in the Cycle A lectionary.

Written with wit, wisdom, and humor, they help to plant the scriptural message in an unforgettable, poignant, contemporary application.

- Requires minimal preparation
- Few props are needed
- 2-4 characters are involved in each sketch

Your wonderful drama left us all hungering for more. I assure you that the Lord is truly working through you.
