In "Wisdom from the Hebrew Scriptures," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite participants to take on the various roles, asking questions to set the scene before choosing any volunteers. Ask:
After the actors are in place, ask: "What happens first? and next? Guide participants through a re-enactment of the story, asking at appropriate intervals, "What is the rich person thinking and feeling? What does the rich person do? What is the poor person feeling and what do they do? What is David thinking and feeling as the story proceeds? How does he feel when Nathan points and says, "YOU are that man!"? How does Nathan feel? What does it mean that Nathan speaks for God in this story? Encourage those who are not playing a role to make suggestions and to offer encouragement to those who are acting out the story.
After the re-enactment, invite participants to offer comments, observations, and insights about the story.
