If you have a love for drama, especially Christian drama, you will note that it can be ministries within a ministry. The performances can truly minister to an audience; but I believe that ministry also takes place with the cast and helpers. When we come to Christ, we are each given at least one gift, and when each member has the opportunity to utilize these gifts ministry takes place within and with out. The bible gives the best illustration of this in I Corinthians chapter twelve when it speaks of the body of Christ and each member using their gift to minister to the other members, thereby giving glory to God. Drama can open the door for many gifts to function where other ministries may not; Consider these: Carpentry- helping to build and construct props Seamstress- making costumes etc. Stage designing and setting Lighting Technicians Sound Technicians Writers When all these gifts come together it increases opportunity for fellowship and that fellowship grows and binds them together in love. And when the plays themselves are over and the curtain has closed on the fi nal scene, it is the fellowship and love that remains and we are left longing for the opportunity to come together again. This is a piece of the puzzle I see when I write a play and I cant wait to put all the other pieces in their places.

In the early 1900s the coming of the Wards Catalog, both the Summer and Winter issues, was an EVENT. There it appeared in the mailbox.... a picture book, a place for children to learn new words, the latest fashions and shoes. There was even a detailed method of measuring a child's foot. There was furniture, tools, toys and even baby chickens could be ordered. You could choose a variety of fowl, and even ask they to be sexed. There was no guarantee against a crowing 'hen' of two, it was just soup kettle for him. When outdated, the catalog furnished small, handy sheets of paper for multiple uses, and was finally relegated to the small house at the back of the property. So when Mr. John Hansen required a mother for his two young children, where would he look? That was a no-brainer for young Florie and Eddie... just look in the catalog.
