MOSES AND THE BURNING BUSH (Exodus 3:1 – 4:17)

by Mike Truman

Unseen “Voice of God”
Children with yellow and red streamers to act as flames

A “bush”(either painted or made from real branches)
Smartphone and earbuds
A walking staff
A rubber snake (initially hidden behind the bush)

Enter Moses, carrying staff and listening through earbuds to smartphone, singing along to a recent hit.

GOD Moses, I am the Lord your God and I command you to return to… Moses? Moses are you listening? Oh, the amateurs I have to work with… Bush, burn with a mighty fire!

Children enter acting as ‘flames, and sit down around the bush, still waving their streamers

MOSES Oh, wow, a bonfire! (takes his earbuds out) I wonder when the fireworks start!? (walks towards the bush)

MOSES Sorry, what?

GOD Lose the shoes, Mo…
