If you want an intriguing resource that can help you bring a fresh, contemporary perspective to some of Jesus' most enduring stories, then "Visualizing The Parables" is just what you're looking for. Originally conceived as a Lenten series, this set of brief plays updates five familiar parables, placing them in a modern context that suggests new ways of understanding these familiar texts. Written in an easy, conversational style and easily adapted to your individual circumstances, these scenes are simple to produce and can be used in a variety of settings. In addition to worship services, they are also excellent for classroom use or as openers for church council or congregational meetings -- and they're a great way of involving your church members (especially youth) in programs or worship.
Parables dramatized include:
* The Ten Bridesmaids (Matthew 25:1-12)
* The Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32)
* The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37)
* The Rich Man (Mark 10:17-27)
* The Great Banquet (Luke 14:16-24)
"Lynn Schlessman presents Jesus' words wrapped in packages that invite audiences to hear these parables in a new way, from an angle that feels accessible. The "punch lines" pack a wallop as they invite longtime Christians to "take another look" and encourage folks unfamiliar with the biblical words to get a glimpse of the absolute gift of God's love."
