Parable Mad-Libs

As you may have seen in the lobby, we’re exploring the form of parables through Mad-Libs.  We have two available, on the lobby display and in the audience context guide (link at the top of this blog), but others have made their own as well!

Check out this Good Samaritan Mad-Lib and this one of New Wine Into Old Wineskins.   Here’s an example of a parable Mad-Lib not completed randomly, but used for a specific purpose.  Both approaches to the parable form can bring a new perspective on how parables work and how they are used in Godspell!


On Parables

Here’s a great look at the history, types, and uses of parables, which make up a significant portion of Godspell.  Previews start Wednesday, so if you want to go in with context, start reading up.

(Speaking of context… there’s a guide for that.)
