Studies have indicated that 75% of what an audience learns and remembers is a result of what they see, while 13% comes from what they hear. Drama puts both together and prepares the audience with a vivid sermon illustration that kindles their anticipation of the pastor's sermon.

The majority of these mini-dramas run 3-5 minutes in length. Each introduces the theme of the Gospel lesson in the Cycle B lectionary. Written with wit, wisdom, and humor, they help to plant the scriptural message in an unforgettable, poignant, contemporary application.

Minimal preparation is required
Few props needed
