Lectionary-Based Gospel Dramas for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany
By Sheila O'Connell-Roussell and Terri Vorndran Nichols
What better way to bring the Gospel alive for teens than through drama? Using reproducible scripts, the dramas in Lectionary-Based Gospel Dramas for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany "break open" the Gospels for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, moving the hearts and minds of youth and adults alike. By engaging in these dramas, participants act as catechist, lector, Gospel players, improv artists, small-group leaders, and audience—a unique learning environment that allows young people to be catechists for themselves and for one another.
The dramas are powerful yet easy to stage. The leader's role is purposefully minimal, allowing teens to take the leading roles in the production. These dramas have been used successfully in school classrooms, parish religious education programs, youth groups, RCIA catechesis, homiletic reflections at Mass, and retreats.
This book contains everything you need to produce 10 dramas, including 10 reproducible scripts and 10 full-page icons by Vicki Shuck, which are an essential component for visual learners. Imagine the excitement and learning your teens will experience as they live the Gospel through drama!
