Joshua

This sketch is about Joshua and the walls of Jericho. It could be used if your theme is about trusting in God. It just has one character. It takes place on his arrival at Jericho. You could have him praying to God or you could have him on a mobile phone to God.
There are silences indicated by …. when he is listening to God’s answers.

Joshua:
Hello God, Joshua here. How’s heavenly glory these days….
Anyway, I thought I’d let you know we’ve made it to Jericho….
I know we’ve only just arrived and I don’t like to complain, but we have a small problem…….
Oh you’ve noticed it too, it’s big isn’t it……
Really! no I didn’t know they have a bigger one in China……
What I just wanted to say was er HELP!…….
No Problem????……..
We do what every day???….
I thought that’s what you said! What all the way round?….
You think the exercise will do us good…
And then seven times on the seventh day – good job we’re not invading China! Anything else?…….
Blow the trumpets. I’m glad you mentioned that, I wouldn’t have thought of that!
Obvious really…..
And then it all falls down – Great!…..
Now seriously what are we going to do!…..
Oh!……..
Can I have this in writing…….
Tell you what, how about a few bricks falling off each day, just as a sign of good faith……
Of course I trust you Lord!….
No I didn’t say that with my fingers crossed…..
You’re sure there’s nowhere else with a smaller wall, I hate to put you to all this trouble……
Oh! its no trouble to YOU….
Well there’s only one thing I’ve got to say to you….
When do we start the band practice!
