"Why didn't you report this earlier?" he asks the woman.  Her reply was, "I figured she'd come back eventually, but she didn't."  The woman then goes on to tell how Alice lived a carefree life full of hobbies and interests, but that it all seemed to change after she had children.  When the woman finally shows the officer a picture of Alice, the officer wants to know if this is all a bad joke, because the woman reporting Alice missing, is none other than Alice, herself.

Using the theater as a metaphor for life, a Director and her assistant hold auditions for a "super star": someone who can be a light in the darkness and a shining example of God's love. But finding this "star" proves harder than it seems:  Starla thinks she shines because of the way she looks and that she's a good example because people will be drawn to her beauty; Francis is all "business" and no emotion and thinks she can win people over with her "smarts";  Madge believes in the "fire and brimstone" approach by scaring people into believing in God; and Hazel has such low self-esteem and a poor understanding of the Bible that it's hard to see her as any kind of star.  All hope of finding a star seems lost until a conversation with the janitor ensues, and we're reminded that a true star can shine anywhere.

This skit is a take-off of the "Flower Power Peace Movement" of the 60's & 70's, and uses flowers as actual characters to symbolize our need for God's peace, love, healing and protection in our lives today. 

The skit opens in Garden Paradise, home of the Master Gardener, caretaker of all flowers.  Blue Bonnet and Daisy have decided to launch a protest against all florist shops, holding up signs that read "We shall not wilt!" and "Flowers were meant to grow free!" They want to send messages to the florists and their supporters, letting them know they are tired of seeing innocent flowers sent to their deaths.  Says Blue Bonnet, "How many more flowers have to shrivel up and die as part of these "arrangements"?  She wants to put an end to the senseless killings.  Meanwhile, AWOL flowers Black Eyed Susan, Baby's Breath and Wall Flower escape to the Garden Paradise, in search of the Master Gardener, if he even exists. They are seeking healing and shelter from the flower shops they've escaped from.  They long to live in a meadow where they can be free but question whether or not such a thing is possible for wildflowers like them. It is up to Blue Bonnet and Daisy to convince them of the love, peace and harmony the Master Gardener can bring into their lives.  

Using song bits, and phrases & references from the 70's, as well as combining both humor and drama, this skit will resonate with you in one way or another.  Perhaps you're a fan of flowers or the 70's, or just need to be reminded of God's love and peace.  In any case, this skit will make you think, smile and thank God for his involvement in your life.

The Cure - Comedy/Drama

Dr. Chase, a hot shot young doctor, implies that her colleague, Dr. Nora, may be too old to continue to practice medicine. But when the Administrator finds fault with some recent case files, the finger seems to be pointed in Dr. Chase's direction.  It seems Dr. Chase was so eager to cure the symptoms, she often overlooked the underlying cause of the symptoms. For instance, what should have been a simple prescription for Mother-in-Law-itis (when the mother-in-law overstays her welcome) turned into a trip to a heart specialist, a bone doctor and enrollment in an anger management program.  It seems "book smarts" isn't the same as life experience, and sometimes you have to look past the symptoms in order to find the cure.  Therfore, the Administrator assigns Dr. Nora to a be a medical mentor for Dr. Chase to help teach her what the medical books can't.  However, both doctors realize they have a lot to learn when a friend of Dr. Nora's shows up for an exam and is diagnosed with a terminal illness called Mask disease: hiding behind a mask so others won't find out about your past or who you really are. In the end, both doctors wonder why it took them so long to find a cure for the disease and speculate on whether or not it's too late to help Dr. Nora's friend.  

This skit uses the medical field as a metaphor for sin and spiritual healing.  It reminds us that we all have problems, we all need each other, and that spiritual healing can only happen if we are open and honest with ourselves and others.

Themes: Healing past hurts; judging others; supporting one another; mentoring; never too old or young to learn something new; reaching out to help others; hiding behind masks; exposing sin; redemption

Set at the bus stop, several pairs of high heel shoes come and go.  The shoes symbolize various types of women in their individual walks of life.  By listening to their tales at the bus stop, we get a glimpse of the kind of lives each woman (shoe) leads. Our cast of characters include:

Gracie, an average high heel who likes to volunteer at church, even though it isn't Sunday. 

Charlotte, a business shoe and workaholic, who is always on the go.

Kay, the "plain jane" high heel who volunteers at the soup kitchen because she likes to help people.

Marla, the teenager who disguised herself as a sneaker to "sneak" out of the house but then reveals her true identity as a hip, young high heel, dressed to go to a party.

Dee, a single sexy "slingback" in search of the perfect man shoe.

Tiffany, the rich and fancy high heel who shops and lays by the pool all day sipping shoe polish.

Jan, the sophisticated cobbler who goes back to the shoe hospital after hours in order to comfort a sick child (a pair of pink Crocs).

Cora, the elder who has traded in her high heels for a pair of orthopedic shoes.

Through the wisdom of Cora, who can think straight now that she's "actually getting some blood flow to her brain" we learn some of the lessons that life has taught her.  For instance, "Life doesn't always turn out like you planned, so you've got to walk the road you've been given." And, "You can either get out there and make a difference in this world or you can sit at home in your closet, waiting for the world to come to you.  Either way, you've got to decide: 'Where will my high heels take me?' The choice is up to you."

Great for any kinds of women's ministries, this skit reminds us that our choices are up to us, and that life is what we make it. 


Themes: The walk of life; our walk with the Lord; life is what you choose to make it; women's ministries

Through the Wringer - Comedy

Pinky and Stretch have been hanging in Penelope's closet for years, but newcomer Glamour isn't so sure she wants to be there.  Glamour hides behind the other clothes in the closet for fear she might get chosen to be worn, and therefore get "dirty."  Her biggest fear is facing the washer and dryer, and the dreaded iron:  she's not sure she has what it takes to survive the heat.  With a little help from Pinky and Stretch, Glamour learns to embrace her fears and to fulfill her destiny. 

This skit illustrates that we are God's chosen people, but that along our journey we will encounter and participate in sin.  Because of God's love for us, he washes us clean, helps us own up to our mistakes by applying "heat" and irons out our "wrinkles," making us new creatures.

Themes: Cleansing of sins; working for God; the process of purification; "God's Laundromat;" hiding from God; the difficult times; fear; answering God's call; God's love for us; new creatures in Christ

Way Down in my Heart - Comedy

This is a "female" version of my skit "Deep in My Heart."  It is similar in content, however it deals with issues more appealing to women. Paula has lost her joy and can't seem to find it anywhere.  She's looked in the refrigerator, near her  famous cheesecake; in the closet, where her brand new Donna Karen designer coat hangs; and even inside her cute little shoes!  But no matter where Paula looks, her joy is nowhere to be found.  Not even a call to the 911 operator can help her.  After all else fails, Paula finally looks in the least likely of places and discovers her joy wasn't missing at all, just misplaced.

Themes: Joy, happiness, contentment
