TITLE: The Omega Blessing
By Glenn A. Hascall


SYNOPSIS: An OID (Oral Interpretation of Drama) seeking to link the blessings we have because of the awesome love of Jesus - who always was and always will be.


NOTE: An OID allows players to hold a three ring binder with the script and is best played when the player uses voice instead of action to convey the significance of the line. Players should never face each other - only the audience. This type of drama uses repetition as positive reinforcement of a primary idea.

Our church in Michigan used to this from time to time, one time my oldest son was #1. This was really good, I enjoyed it. Brought all the truths of the gospel out in under 750 words - bravo!

Very interesting. I could see the actors reading their parts and I liked the repetition. Effective.

Glenn, I've never seen this type of performance, but I could picture it here. Seems like it would be very dramatic and effective. I know I enjoyed it. :^)
