  • Mark His Word Cycle B


    Jesus told his apostles to “count the cost” of following him. For the twelve, it meant leaving their jobs, their homes and families. It meant literally taking up a new life and leaving the old one behind.

    What is the cost of following Jesus today?

    Frank Ramirez challenges the modern Church as he explores that question in Mark His Word: Cycle B Sermons for Proper 16 through Thanksgiving Based on the Gospel Texts. Using analogies from the space race to a science fiction short story by Isaac Asimov to the diary of a Civil War-era abolitionist preacher, Ramirez paints a variety of pictures of what it looks like to act in allegiance to the cause of Christ, to answer the call of the Holy Spirit no matter the consequences.

    The pastor who utilizes Mark His Word will see a church reinvigorated in time for Advent, prepared to step forth courageously into the world to live and speak truth to a world dying to know it.

    Lessons Include:

    “No Turning Back” (John 6:56-69)
    “For Us or Against Us?” (Mark 9:38-50)
    “Give Thanks for What?” (Matthew 6:25-33)

  • Bee Attitudes


    Frank Ramirez believes that youth and children are the church of today and should be invited to participate regularly in worship. To this end, he has written delightful plays that are meant to bring Christ into our ordinary days. Whether performed in elaborate style with costuming and staging, or simply read directly from the script in a much simpler style, these plays that include copy privileges will add whimsy to worship services while teaching deep truths. It will be hard to determine who enjoys them the most — the children and youth who are performing or the parents and grandparents with the cameras!

    From “Witnesses to the Light” — which features angels named Fantastic, Marvelous, Wonderful, and Gabriel — to “Holy Water” — with sheep named Be Bop, Bo Peep, Bah Humbug, and Bill — all six dramas presented in The Bee Attitudes will delight young and old.

  • Gabriels Horn : Readers Theater For Advent


    Looking for something fresh and creative for the Advent season? Here’s a charming set of five lighthearted plays that’s sure to engage audiences and set the holiday spirit while remaining focused on the scriptural message. Written in whimsical rhyming verse, the scenes detail the prophecies of the Messiah and the story of the Incarnation through the interaction of three angels (Gabriel, Wonderful, and, Marvelous) with several biblical characters.

    Congregations of any size will find these sketches easy to use — only a small cast is needed, and the readers’ theater format means no extensive costuming or staging is required.

    Scenes include:
    * Gabriel’s Horn (Last Sunday of Pentecost)
    * The Honeymooners (Advent 1)
    * The Cleanup Crew (Advent 2)
    * The Reading Club (Advent 3)
    * Step Up To The Plate (Advent 4)

    Two of the angel characters reappear after a 33-year “vacation” in “M.I.H. — Missing In Heaven,” an Easter verse drama (also written by Frank Ramirez) included in the CSS anthology Roll Back The Stone.

  • Coming Home


    After many years of preaching from the first three chapters of Luke and the first two chapters of Matthew, Frank Ramirez decided to preach about something a little different around Christmastime. What evolved was this series of seven messages for the Sundays beginning with Advent and ending with Epiphany.

    Why a sermon series based on the Old Testament book of Haggai? Ramirez writes, “I’ve always been fascinated by the lesser known books of the Old Testament, partly because I’m afraid of being embarrassed in heaven if I don’t recognize some of these people!”
