Brad: Well, I was thinking about becoming a member.
Brian: A member? A member of what?
Brad: A member of the church.
Brian: (puzzled, like putting 2 + 2 together) A “member” of the “church”. (suddenly excited) Wait a minute. You want to JOIN the church?
Brad: That’s right.
Brian: Aren’t you already a member?
Brad: Well I’m not sure. But I don’t think so.
Brian: Not sure. How peculiar? (starting to get official) Ok, let’s start at the very beginning. Have you been confirmed?
Brad: I’m not sure.
Brian: Alright. Take a deep breath. Listen carefully. I’m going to give you another chance. Think again very carefully before you answer, because this is the critical question here. Tell me if you need to phone a friend. “Have you been confirmed?”
Here's a drama that I wrote as part of the presentation about church membership at our UCA national assembly. Thanks to Lindsay Cullen for presenting it with me. We had fun.
