This piece is based on the actual testimony of the founder of the Vineyard churches, but no connection to that denomination is necessary to enjoy the sketch. The objective of the piece is to draw attention to the ways in which it can be difficult for an unchurched person to understand what’s going on when they visit a church; the language and culture barriers that can make their search for God more confusing.
The retelling of a true and humorous story about a nameless church can help church audiences examine what unwitting barriers we may have put in people’s way, without feeling too threatened by a more targeted satire. The other good thing about telling Wimber’s story is that it has a really happy ending. Length: 10 minutes; Cast Size: 4 persons.
