Welcome, Blessed Morning! has two drama resources that will enhance the celebration of Easter Day in any Christian congregation. Both involve several members of the congregation as participants, and both may be simply staged. Copying privileges are included, so that multiple copies may be made for participants and congregation.
"Early on the First Day" is a dramatic retelling of the resurrection account, including elements from all four gospels. It is intended for presentation out-of-doors, preferably in a cemetery. Suggestions are included for music and congregational participation, making this a complete sunrise worship resource.
"Peter Becomes the Rock" is an Easter drama for five actors and nine additional stand-in participants, intended for presentation in the congregation's worship area. It focuses on Peter's remorse over having denied Jesus and the turnaround which he experiences when confronted by the Living Christ.
