This "Reader's Theater” skit is a retelling of the "Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector," placed in a modern context, while the original text is read by a narrator.

In this parable, pious Chris enters the church to pray and thumbs his nose at the ragged couple who enters the church and sits across from him. They carry a container that reads, "Please give." Chris is outraged and thanks God that he is not a looser like those people are.

As the couple exits, the husband knocks over the container and the other side of it becomes visible; it reads, "a new kidney for Jeremy." He asks for Chris' prayers because today his wife is having surgery to donate a kidney to their son, Jeremy.

Chris is dumbfounded and humbled, just like the Pharisee in the parable Jesus told.
