Set & Props: cell phone, chair, end table, keys, Bible
(PERSON 1 is on a cell phone dialing a bunch of people.)
P1 Hello, is Janice there?... That’s okay.
. (dials again) Hey, Kathy, want to do something?...
. No problem. Talk to you later.
(PERSON 1 dials again and waits, then hangs up.
PERSON 2 walks by with car keys in hand.)
P1 Where are you going?
P1 Can I come.
P2 Negative! I’ve got a date.
P1 I won’t get in the way.
P2 What is your problem?
P1 Everyone is busy. I have nothing to do.
P2 Do you always have to be doing something?
. You know, it doesn’t hurt to be by yourself
. once in a while.
P1 I don’t like being alone.
P2 Well, of course, you’re never really all alone.
. God is always with you. Or is that the problem?
. Are you afraid to be alone with God so you’ll
. have to maybe acknowledge Him?
P1 Nooo! Well - I guess I have some work I could do.
P2 (stops) Wait, so – if you’re not socializing, 2
. you have to be working?
P1 What’s wrong with that? A person has to have fun.
. But to have fun, a person has to earn some money.
. And because you’re so working hard, you need to take
. a break and have some fun. What else is there?
P2 Yeah... but you need a balanced life.
P1 It is balanced. I work to get enough money
. to have fun.
P2 God created us a little more complex than that!
. You need to feed the physical body with food,
. and you need to feed the emotional part
. with friends and family, but the most important part
. to feed is the spiritual part. If you don’t feed
. the spiritual part with God, you’ll feel empty
. in all the other parts. And you’ll spend your life
. trying to fill the void with other things –
. but you will never be satisfied.
P1 What if I don’t like the - spiritual FOOD?
P2 Remember when Mom tried to get you to eat
. strawberries, and you refused because you thought
. they looked funny? But when you finally tried them –
. they became your favorite fruit. How do you even
. know if you haven’t ever tried it? So, here’s some –
. food for thought.
(P2 sees a Bible, picks it up and hands it to P1.)
P2 And now I better get going or I’ll be late.
. See you later.
(P2 leaves. P1 paces while trying to call a few more
people. P1 finally looks around, then up.)
P1 Okay, okay. You got me alone. I’ll stop running
. and try this. Could it possibly be even better
. than strawberries?
(P1 picks up the Bible and exits in the other direction.)
