Alex pitches an invisible ball. Jared hits it. A
ball flies up backstage. Alex dives to catch it. He comes up with grass in his
mouth. One piece is stuck between his buckteeth.
Jared: Ha ha ha!
Alex: (spits out grass) Putooey!!
Jared: (Laughing) Why didn’t your momma call you Alex weed-eater
Alex: starts crying and hiccupping and continues
slows down and is normal by the end.
Ashli and Evette walk up.
Hi Ashli! Hi Evette! (innocently)
Evette: Hey! Why is Alex crying?
Alex: He…(hiccup) called…(hiccup)
Ashli: Why did you call him that Jared?
Jared: Cause he’s just a clumsy little weed-eating
Evette: Jared, that isn’t nice.
Ashli: Yeah, it isn’t nice to judge people by how
they look or act.
Evette: James 2 says that we should treat everyone
the same whether
rich or poor; graceful or clumsy; cool or uncool.
Ashli: And God chose the poor, clumsy and uncool people
to live in
because they love God.
Evette: The people who
are rich, graceful or cool think they’re better
than everyone else…
Ashli: …but God said to
love your neighbor as yourself.
Jared: I never thought of
it that way before. God does love everyone
the way they
Ashli: God created
everyone and that’s why everyone is cool to him.
Jared: I feel bad…what should I do?
Ashli: Apologize to Alex.
Evette: …and to God.
Jared: Alex, I’m really
sorry I called you weed-eater. I’ll never judge
Alex: That’s ok. I
forgive you. Do you want to play baseball again?
Jared: Sure, but just a
minute…I need to apologize to God first.
