Four friends talk at the coffee hour at church. The skit is intended as a lead-in to a sermon or skit written by you! This is just a tickler to get others thinking. The full presentation of the message comes in your sermon or devotion.


Acts 11:19-30

Vaughn: I saw the best T-shirt on this kid coming out of church last Sunday.

Estelle: I hope it was an appropriate saying. I’m not fond of some of the things people wear printed on their shirts.

Vaughn: Well, this kid was about 15, he had braided locks hanging to on side of his head, baggy jeans, and, you know, an attitude. Well the shirt said “Body piercing…

Leon: (Interrupts Vaughn before he can continue.) Ah, Vaughn, are you sure this saying is appropriate to repeat?

Julie: I’m not sure this was proper attire for church, but, go on. What did it say?

Vaughn: It said, “Body piercing changed my life.”

Estelle: Times have sure changed. I didn’t even let my girls pierce their ears when they were young. They had to wait to leave home to do that. What’s your point, Vaughn?

Vaughn: Well, under the words was a picture of Christ on the cross with the nails piercing His hands and feet.

Leon: Wow, “Body piercing changed my life”. What a witness. There was a bold label of “Christian” on that boy’s back.

Julie: And to think how I many times I downplay Christianity at work just to keep the peace.

Vaughn: I know I get teased by the guys at work sometimes, because they know I go to church every Sunday. But they watch me a lot to see how honest I am in my business dealings. They pay pretty close attention to how I treat others at work, too.

Julie: Well, I hope I can be more brave and start letting others know I love Jesus as did that boy you saw at church.

Leon: You can be sure others are watching, and when we let our Savior’s love spill out of us and into their lives, we will uphold the name of Jesus, and be proud to be called “Christian”.

Julie: “Christian”: Follower of Christ..

Estelle: That’s weird -to think that body piercing has changed my life.
