This book engages young people in an active form of learning that is hard to beat. It achieves MLP (maximum learning potential) through FLP (full laugh potential). And the skits are so off-the-wall that you will have no problem involving just about everybody in your group one way or another (actually most of the participants will have no choice in the matter!). Each of the ten sessions in this book uses an intentional three-act process to help the young people systematically explore the Scriptures and apply them to their lives today. The sessions are perfect for religious education classes, youth groups, campus ministry events, retreats, lock-ins, and intergenerational and family programs. Best of all, the Ready-to-Go Scripture skits are just that: ready-to-go. Few props are used, no lines need to be memorized, and no characters have to be developed.

It's Wednesday night and once again the youth pastor needs some elements to fill her program. She's got the message. She sees the purpose and value of getting students involved, but there never seems to be enough time. Between staff meetings and taking care of the ministry, she can't get to it all. SKETCHUATIONS can come to the rescue. The youth minister is sharing on lying/deception. She picks up the book, turns to the index of words, and finds "lying". Turns to the appropriate page and finds at least 15 situations she could use to get students on stage and illustrating the point. Granted, some SKETCHUATIONS may turn out to be home runs, and some may be duds, depending on who volunteers to get on stage. There is an introduction page for each sketch the user can read to make sure the situations go smoothly and the students are a success. The wonderful part of SKETCHUATIONS is that even if the situation doesn't go great, students love watching their peers and friends get on stage and be fools for a little bit. SKETCHUATIONS can fill that void with great visuals and great truths, which come out of the people who are experiencing the subjects firsthand. If there is a leader who likes drama, they can use the scriptwriting blueprint to take an improvised situation and (with some tweaking) make a great skit for the upcoming program. Plus, the book is packed with tons of useful improv games to use during rehearsal to make your team better onstage--or you can use them as icebreakers. Either way, SKETCHUATIONS is sure to be a success with your group!

Although there are only five in the party, the pastor asks for a table for six. The story unfolds as the pastor explains why he has requested an extra place setting and chair. The practical format of The Empty Chair allows participants to use scripts instead of memorizing long passages. If desired, the characters may conceal their scripts within their menus. The Christian message is blended into the words of each reader as a means to get the gospel message to the audience.
