Letters, I need letters

Feeling better and better each day I'm trying to think of ways that MOLC might be helpful to those brave souls who enter the cyberportal here....

So let me tell you what I have in my trusty file cabinets that just might fill the bill-

For an adult ed class I have two "radio" plays:

Jeremiah and the $1,000/plate dinner - an intro to OT,particularly the prophets;
Creative Writing 101 - an intro to Matt, Mark, Luke, John and Paul.
I call these radio plays because neither needs props, sound effects, etc.
Those participating just read the script, no memorizing. The first is a
monologue, the second 5 participants.

Several songs/hymns on following topics:

Ministry of all People

One celebratory Eucharistic setting for guitar with a Latino flair

Native-American inspired meditation piece w/storyteller

a Christmas pagaent

an Easter Vigil for children

That's a sample. Anything interest you? Let me know and I'll post away!

I also want to encourage you to send things in.... sermons, meditations, songs, skits. There are times when something a bit different is welcome - sometimes necessary.

Doing church and doing it well stimulates the heart and mind, enriches our prayer life and our spiritual well being. It gives us the wherewithall to go out in the world "rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit". Your contributions are very welcome and appreciated!!!

I would LOVE to see whatever you have for an Easter Vigil for children! (At my parish, the Vigil is jokingly referred to as "Church-sanctioned child abuse" because it goes on for so long!)

Oh, what gifts you offer us! Please post all of it - the 2 radio plays, the Easter vigil for children, the Christmas pageant, the Latin-flair Eucharist setting, the Native American inspired meditation with storyteller - all of it. We are a diverse congregation, and Open and Affirming, and in need of resources. Soon I hope to then share some of our ideas with all of you!

I would really love to have the Christmas pageant. We have tried several different ones over the years and could use something creative! Thanks, Linda
