The Lord's Prayer Dialogue, a one-act play for two actors, was written by Deacon S.M. "Bill" DuBois of the Diocese of Kansas. Bill died in 2006. Shortly after his death, Bill's wife, Lina, gave a copy of the play to the Rev. Nicolette Papanek . Lina asked Nicolette to use Bill's play in any way that would deepen people's connection with God. Lina died in 2008.
We give thanks to Almighty God for the lives and ministries of Bill and Lina. May Lina's wish for Bill's play be granted by our merciful and loving God.
Actors: Cynthia Walker, Jim Gard.
Actors: David Wolff, Elise Hyder
11Soon afterwards* he went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went with him. 12As he approached the gate of the town, a man who had died was being carried out. He was his mother’s only son, and she was a widow; and with her was a large crowd from the town. 13When the Lord saw her, he had compassion for her and said to her, ‘Do not weep.’ 14Then he came forward and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, ‘Young man, I say to you, rise!’ 15The dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus* gave him to his mother. 16Fear seized all of them; and they glorified God, saying, ‘A great prophet has risen among us!’ and ‘God has looked favourably on his people!’ 17This word about him spread throughout Judea and all the surrounding country.
