2004: GUILTY? A courtroom. A crime. An accusation. Case pending…jurors needed.
“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity” 1 Timothy 4:12.
The Efil County Art Museum has burned to the ground and young Trent Stone is on trial for arson. The stakes are against Trent as the testimony of several witnesses continues to point to him as the instigator. Trent’s Defense lawyer, Brian Taylor, is fresh out of school and seems to be doing more harm than good, especially now that he’s up against the intimidating expertise of the Prosecutor, Aaron Gahoogawich. Just as the situation looks hopeless for Trent, the case takes an unexpected twist and the jury finds themselves having to unravel another case before they can continue with the first. The children are part of the jury and are called on to weigh the evidence as it is presented and render their verdict when the time comes.
Building on the main concepts presented in the drama, the children are challenged in three primary areas: Honoring Parents, Standing Alone, and Telling the Truth. Session titles include: Will You Be on the Jury?, Being Under Parents’ Protection, Basing our Search for Truth on God’s Word, Standing Alone, and Are You Forgiven?
