Hey guys! How are ya? Loving the snow huh? Well I never got around to posting about this before but for about the past month and a half i've been working on a Muppet Puppet show for a Christian church which I performed at today Sunday Dec 14th. Let me give some back ground first, this is something i wanted to post a while ago. Well back in early November right after I got my drivers license i was invited to go to a church retreat called Footsteps for teens, Now i'm 20 years old so i was the oldest canident there besides for the other college students that were actually running the program with adults too. My friend Kitty for the pizza place I work at invited me saying that i'd have a lot of fun, i'd never even done a retreat before so my parents thought it would be a nice idea to, It was at a Christian church but it was nondoman....I don't know how to spell it yet alone say it, but (I'm Roman Catholic BTW) the retreat was on Dec 7th 8th and 9th Fri-Sun. I wasn't sure what i'd be doing but my friend told me a few of the activities that we would be doing, but to keep it secrete because "i'm not suppose to know about them yet" I weaseled a few things outta her;-) ok i'm getting to the point now...LOL so i deiced i'd bring my Muppet puppets (full body Kermit and then the Terry Angus frog Puppet I have named Sebastian. But i didn't tell anyone I did. well anyways i was having so much fun with the kids telling them about my muppet-fanness and that i did some puppetry. also in our small groups we had to make posters about reading we heard and then share them to all the other groups in which my group always had a muppet character or two on them, they loved my drawings...I could talk forever and go into more detail but i'm trying to get to the point...LOL~ So on the second day of the retreat all the groups had to put together a short skit, and THIS is where my puppets came in! oh my group was soooo amazed and kept calling me there "secrete weapon" I used the puppets and we did a skit based on a story called "Warm and fuzzy" were you pass along these warm and fuzzy (muppephone-like) creatures to people representing Gods love but you have to share it and shouldn't keep it to yourself. There was a man there that saw our skit and he asked me to come to his own church and do a Puppet show. i said sure but that i'd never done puppet shows for a church before. Well anyways I worked with the youth group and performed a short skit right at the altar in front of everyone. they called up the children and i was also mic'd so the whole congregation could hear me. I actually did two shows today (one at 9:15 and the other at 11:00) same show. it was so great! I'll talk about it more in this post, my message is a little too long now, lol!! I'll break some more info up soon as well as post a script of what i did too! Take care and Happy Hoildays!
