THE THIEF

Cast: Satan, Child, Man, Mother

Satan:        Maybe you know me, and maybe you don’t.  My name is Satan.  It used to be Lucifer,         but that was a long time ago.

        You don’t believe in me do you!?

        Well let me show you some of my work.

        (Walks over to Child)

        Meet Nikki!.  Her father was an alcoholic, and used to beat her mother, and her from         pillar to post; and so I fed her one of my lies.  I said, “They don’t love you, nobody         loves you, everybody hates you, even God.  After all He put you in this family.  What         are you going to do with all this pain Nikki?  I know, have a drink, it will help you to         forget. And so I gave her a drink, and then another, and another, and another.  And         now look at her, a drunken alcoholic, just like her father.

        (Walks to Man)

        And just look at Bob.  I told him a beauty.  It’s an oldie but it’s a goodie.  I said,                 “Money is what you need if you want to be happy!”  And he believed me!

        He chased after money, worked hard to get to the top, it didn’t matter who he hurt, or         what he did, as long as he got more and more money.  His wife wanted him, his children

needed him, but he put them off, so he could make more money.

        So his wife left him; and then his children went; and all he had left was his money.          Lots of lovely         money!

        What a fool!

        (Walks to Lady)

        And here is Susie!

        A faithful little housewife,  but I told her, life is not as much fun now that you’re         married!  You need more excitement  Your husband is too busy; all he cares about is work.  He doesn’t appreciate you.  Why don’t you dress yourself up, put on your make up and go out and have some fun?

        Yes, play the field, have a party!  Become a good time girl.  And so she did!

        But she didn’t know I’d let her husband find out, and her children found out, and they all left her; and after all her friends finished with her, they left her.  Now she feels dirty, and used; and nobody wants her.

        Poor Susie - ha!

        And I know you, and you;  I know you all!

And I know your weaknesses, and I know your dark secrets,

        And I will be seeing you around!


HANDS

Cast:  God, Adam, Eve, Narrator

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth,

The mountains and the valleys,

The seas, and the fish that swim in them.

The trees, and the birds of the air.

And God created Man, and Woman.

And God gave us hands…, that we might create…,

Hands to love…,to give…,

Hands to help…, and defend.

God gave us hands, but we have used these hands to destroy!

Hands that should love, now hate!

Hands that should give, now take!

Hands that should help, now hold back!

Where they should defend, they attack!

God reached out His hands of love to a world destroying itself

And embraced His rebel creation with the hands of healing.

But we nailed those hands to the cross,

And said, “Stay there God!”

But He didn’t, and He won’t.

He walks the streets of the world today,

His scarred hands open,

Waiting, …, Longing!

For whoever will come!

What will you do with Jesus?

Try not to hear?

Try not to see?

His truth remains the same!

Will your hands embrace Him, or refuse Him?

You have a choice!

Hold onto your life, …, and lose it!

Or give it over to God, and gain it!

What will you do with Jesus?


THE BURDEN

Cast: Jesus, Burden Bearer, (People representing various lifestyles i.e. Education, Drugs, Sex, Macho man, Materialism, Hedonism, Money, etc)

Stage is set with People representing various lifestyles standing frozen at attention with the right arm half cocked like a lever to pull down, and the hand in a fist.  The people form a shallow semi circle facing the audience.

Jesus is behind them facing away from the audience.

Burden Bearer is at the back of the audience, with a sack on his back.

BB:          (screams) Help!  Somebody, please help me!  I’ve got this burden on my back.  It’s so heavy, and I’ve been carrying it for such a long time.  Somebody, …, you, you look friendly, maybe you could help me get it off.  What about you?  Oh, wait, look there are some people (points to the actors at the front).  Maybe they can help me!

        (BB walks to the front and stands in the middle of the semi-circle!)

        You look intelligent! Can you help me?  I’ve got this burden on my back.  Can you help me to get it off?  

(As he says this, he pulls down the arm of one of the actors)

$:        Sure I can help you.  What you need is money!  You need to get lots of money.  That way you can have anything you want.  You could get a TV, a video machine, a new car, new house, new clothes.  Yes sir!  Money is what will get rid of that burden.  You can forget about all your troubles, they will be gone, because you will be able to get anything you want.
