Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
The intention of this play is to help participants get "inside" the Easter story and experience it the way people may have often done with the Christmas story. It has been done effectively in sanctuaries as the sermon on the Second Sunday of Easter. This timing enhances the celebration of The Great 50 Days of Easter, and if the local schools are on Spring Break during Holy Week and Easter weekend (and some families are therefore away) may enable people to be involved who may have missed those liturgies in their home church. The play is designed to be intergenerational. It can be performed by cast members with scripts in hand if need be. The music includes the congregation singing.
The cast consists of 10 persons. The length of this presentation is 30 minutes and the intended age level is youth and adults. The purchase price includes full rights to reproduce material for everyone in the presentation.
