Growing in Christ

What is the church? Is it the physical building we go to on Sunday morning? That’s the perception of many. This Readers Theater presentation explains that God’s church is not a building, but the body of believers in Jesus Christ.
Two church members are fishing on a pier. In the course of their conversation, Charles expresses concern that the church is attracting a lot of people with personal problems. While they are talking, Deacon Wilson repeatedly catches fish and throws them back into the water. Eventually, Deacon Wilson explains that he is looking for a fish that has already been cleaned inside and out. Charles realizes there is no such thing as a “clean fish”; after you catch the fish, then you can clean it. Deacon Wilson helps Charles understand that new members are like that. They may come with many problems and issues but God is able to change them just like He changed us.

Jack is so consumed by the football game he fails to notice that Jesus is actually speaking to him. Jesus uses the sport of football as an allegory to explain the role of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in our life today. This is a great sketch to perform during the football season.
