[Open session with the puppets.]

Puppet script

(Two puppets, Jane and Fred)

Set up: Fred is on stage saying hello to the children in the classroom. Jane quietly enters the stage from behind Fred.

Jane (says loudly)

Hi Fred!

Fred

Geeees Jane, you scared me!

Jane

Sorry Fred, I didn’t mean to scare you.

Fred

Yea, well you did a good job of it!

Jane

Well, I am sorry. Next time I will give warning that I am coming.

Fred

Good.

Jane

You know I was afraid last night. There was lots of thunder and lightning.

Fred

Yes, I know, so was I.

Jane

What do you do when you are afraid?

Fred

I usually go into the room that my parents are in.

Jane

Don’t you parents get afraid too?

Fred

I don’t know, they keep saying that everything will be fine and I have nothing to worry about.

Jane

Do you believe them?

Fred

I am not sure, but I rather listen to them than the thunder.

Jane

My mom told me that being scared is sometimes good for you.

Fred

How?

Jane

Because it warns you to stay away from things or people that could hurt you.

Fred

You mean like you?

Jane

No Fred, I am not going to hurt you. I only accidentally scared you.

Fred

Ohhh, Ok.

END

Scripture reading:

Acts 13: 43-52

Messengers of God’s word went to unfamiliar lands, knowing that God would look after their safety.

Discussion:

Bad things do happen to good people. When Jesus speaks of God keeping us safe, he is referring to our eternal life.

Have you ever been scared?

What do you do or who do you go to when you are scared?

Jane said that sometimes being scared is good for you. Who knows why?

Many non-believers have turned to God when they thought they were dying. Why?
