Parables Assembly Sample Text:
Narrator: Good morning and welcome to our assembly on The Parables!
Student: On the what?
Narrator: On the Parables! Don’t tell me you don’t know what these are?
Student: Well, that is kinda why I was asking!
Narrator: OK. So you know they’re taken from the Bible?
Student: And delivered by Jesus. Yes, I know that much. But what was their point?
Narrator: Ah! An excellent question and one which will hopefully be revealed to you this morning.
(To Cast) Right?
Cast: (Together) Right!
Narrator: So, what I suggest you do is sit back with me
(Narrator and Student both walk towards their allocated chairs, at the side)
Student: Sounds easy enough!
(Narrator hands student notepad and pen)
Narrator: And then report back to me at the end of the assembly, on the point of all four parables.
Student: (Exclaiming) Four?
Narrator: Correct! We’re in for a real treat. So sit back, listen and note! The first parable is The Good Samaritan.
