We should always respond with love and respect to those in authority over us. (OK, so we were thinking about new pastors. Hopefully it's not too obvious!)
Customer Service Genesis 6:3-13 1
When confronted with our sin, the appropriate response is to accept responsibility, ask for forgiveness, and repent. Unfortunately, our responses can sometimes mirror that of Adam and Eve. We may try to hide, blame others, shun responsibility, be defensive, or any combination of these.

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Large, Fur-Bearing Mammals Genesis 11:1-8 6
This skit was inspired by a sermon on the Tower of Babel in which our pastor pointed out that real the sin of the ancients lay in their disobedience of the people to God's command to "Go forth and multiply," and choosing instead to build a monument to themselves. He then drew a poignant parallel between the ancients and the church of today.

This is a silent sketch, based upon Ezekiel's vision found in Ezekiel 44:1-12, and a rather interesting message I heard preached on the passage. It illustrates the price of our discipleship, and the pitfalls we can fall into. It works best on a stage with several steps or levels - such as a church platform with choir risers. This not being available, a larger stage will work.
God Doesn't Even Know We're Here Exodus 16 and other similar passages 5
This skit uses the ancient Israelites on their exodus to illustrate our all-too-common tendency to ignore the gifts that God has given us, and to ignore, and even complain about, the every day miracles we have
