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 volunteer actors. 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 Abraham thinking and feeling? How about Isaac? What do the two boys who accompany Abraham do? What do they think about what is happening? What is God thinking? How does God's voice sound to Abraham? Can Isaac hear it? Does he know what is going to unfold? Encourage those who are not actors to make suggestions and 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.
