The Dirt on Growing Up – (Electronic)


Four different responses to the Word of God is the topic of this “Skermon” (skit/sermon) presenting a modern parallel to “The Parable of the Sower”: lack of understanding, shallow faith, faith destroyed by the world, and fruitful soil. The pastor either comments after each soil as they freeze, or he comments at the end.


In this “Skermon” (skit/sermon) about evangelism, Jesus tells the parable of “The Sower” as a metaphor of four different reactions to the Word of God being planted in the human heart.

This “Skermon” brings those four soils to life. The seed planted by the footpath (Robin) does not understand God’s truth and rejects it; the seed planted in shallow ground (Sandy) does not withstand hardship or persecution; the seed planted among the thorns (Rhoda) is choked out by cares and riches; but, the seed, planted in good soil, (Earnestine, Gladys, and Melody) yields a crop one hundred-fold.

The pastor may choose to present the sermon in four parts after each vignette, or at the end while the characters freeze as he approaches each one. This skit is particularly good for a retreat or a sermon series because each vignette can appear before a message on that particular type of soil (heart reaction to the Gospel).
