The Holy Club
Song: “O for A Thousand Tongues” by Charles Wesley
Puppet 1: Were you invited over to Pete’s tomorrow?
Puppet 2: No. What’s up?
Puppet 1: He just invited a few of the guys over for some club meeting.
Puppet 2: I didn’t know he had a club.
Puppet 1: He wants to start a club.
Puppet 2: What kind of club?
Puppet 1: Something about Tough Guys Don’t Bend.
Puppet 2: Doesn’t sound like something I’d be interested in.
Puppet 1: I though I’d go and see what they are up to.
Puppet 2: Sometimes it is best to just stay away from something that appears to be questionable.
Puppet 1: I think some of the guys he hangs around with smoke.
Puppet 2: I bet his parents don’t’ know that. His parents both work at the hospital.
Puppet 1: Well, I don’t plan to join. Did you read about the Holy Club?
Puppet 2: Holy Club! Wow! Who has that club?
Puppet 1: Two brothers.
Puppet 2: What were their names?
Puppet 1: John and Charles Wesley. When they were going to college they started a religious Holy club.
Puppet 2: What did they do?
Puppet 1: I guess they prayed and read the Bible. They may have some witnessing. They thought the school did not provide enough spiritual examples for them.
Puppet 2: What did the school think about this?
Puppet 1: I don’t know, but I do know that some of the students though it was a joke and called them Methodist.
Puppet 2: What did they do after they graduated from college?
Puppet 1: They went to America to work with the Indians. They were really hard workers in evangelism. They would work 15 to 18 hours every day.
Puppet 2: Wow! That is a lot of hours to work. My mom finds it hard to get me to word 1 hour a day. I have so much homework and like to play outside. I hat doing house chores.
Puppet 1: On the 11th anniversary of Charles Conversion, he wrote the song “O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing.”
Puppet 2: What is conversion mean?
Puppet 1: Oh that is when you get saved or give you heart to Jesus.
Puppet 2: He had been saved 11 years when he wrote that song. He must have been very happy. The song say, O for a thousand tongues to sing, they great Redeemer’s praise. The glories of my God and King, the triumph of His grace.
Puppet 1: Charles died when he was 50. He wrote the song: Hark the Herald Angels Sing. Also.
Puppet 2: I like that song. Do you think anyone will mid if we sing a Christmas song?
Both Puppets: Hark the herald angels sing, glory to the newborn king. Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled. Good Bye Kids.
