A Symphony of Remembrance
By Darlene Hight

[Reader 1] Remembering what God has done for us is a no-fail recipe for restoring hope. Joshua lists 31 Kings who were defeated by Godís army. In Joshua 12, he made a list. Are you lacking hope? What has God done? Take time, and make a 31 list. Experience hope restored. (50 words)

[Reader 2] Remember to praise the Glorious God and capture joy in the chambers of your heart. He is worthy of all our praise. He is worthy. Elusive joy and yet, not to those who fill His courts with praise. Let the rocks cry out? No! We will praise our Magnificent Savior. (50 words)

[Reader 3] Remember that love covers a multitude of sins. Do you remember that your brother has anything against you, go back and be reconciled, then bring your gift to God. Greater gift has no man than that he lay down his life for a friendÖ and he was loved by God. (50 words)

[Reader 4] Remember, Jesus took his own blood and he secured our salvation forever. Christ offered himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins. Remember, God put His laws in our heart. ďI will never again remember their sins and lawless deeds.Ē There is, now, no need for more sacrifices. (50 words)

[Reader 5] Let us hold tight to hope. God can be trusted to keep His promise. I rise early, before the sun is up; I cry out for help and put my hope in your words. My lips burst forth with praise. You have taught me your principles. Your words give light. (50 words)

[Directors note: I have written this piece in the form of a readerís theater script. Readerís theater is a form of drama where all of the actors perform from a stationary position on stage i.e.: sitting on a stool or standing in one spot perhaps behind a lectern. In most cases, the readers will be spotlighted as they deliver their lines. I suggest positioning the readers like this; Reader 1, Reader 4, Reader 2, Reader 3, Reader 5 this will cause the voices to move from one area of the stage to another and add more interest to the reading. Typically readers will be dressed in all black and read their scripts from a black binder. Other possibilities for costuming are choir robes or a variety of typical work wardrobes i.e. a nurse, a construction worker, business suit etc. In all forms of drama including readerís theater, lines should be memorized for smooth delivery. While this piece is written as a readerís theater, never the less, it could be read as an opening by one reader or used as a tool for personal reflection.Follow performance with a song selection such as 'Thy word is a lamp unto my feet' ]

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I've done a lot of reader's theaters and this gave me chills - loved it. Especially liked 5 - I do that!!

"Let the rocks cry out? No! We will praise our Magnificent Savior." I love this line...I think I'll share it with the youth leader at church. I can see this on stage at church. Thanks for sharing. Janice

Beautifully and powerfully done!

These are very inspirational, and good reminders as well. I like the format, too. Well done.

I loved visualizing this Reader's Theatre - I could see it preformed with each voice appropriate for each read. Amazing - I'd love to experience this. (I like the back on black scenario) Each read is poignant and full of hope - you packed so much into 50 words! #2 and 4 are my favs.
Linda Roth 26 Sep 2007
This is excellent. The explanation at the bottom allowed me to visualize the effect it should all have. #1 was something I needed spiritually today.

This is a unique take on the challenge. I could picture it being performed on stage.

This is special. I couldn't select just one reader, but for theatre the whole partial is well done.
