The Angel [Christmas Monologue] is one of three monologues originally written for and performed in the senior high student ministry at Willow Creek Community Church North Shore.
ANGEL – male, wearing white robe
Suggested Intro: Black slide with the word GABRIEL written in white – fading into background slide of a starry night or white clouds (to suggest Heaven).
Cue stage lights. ANGEL speaks to the audience.
For thousands of years I have delivered God’s messages to earth. At times what He speaks is personal and intimate. Other times His voice is mighty and strong to be heard by any who choose to listen and change. Every time His words are exact, true, perfect. When the Maker of heaven and earth takes a moment to speak . . . it is more wonderful and beautiful than any being could possibly express. It is with this joy that I proudly proclaim His messages.
Over time He has chosen a specific group of people to speak to. Israel is His beloved and the storyteller of His plan unfolding on earth. In this nation there once lived a girl by the name of Mary. The message God intended for her was one of astounding significance – not only for her – but for everyone for all of eternity. The message I brought to Mary sparked messages for shepherds and Wise Men and people who would live for centuries after her part of the story ended.
This message is The Message that heralds every other message I have ever delivered: God wearing the flesh of humanity as a child born to save the world.
Lights fade. ANGEL exits.
