Ok, I have this idea for a gospel message to present when doing the quarter in soda can effect. I am not going to give away the effect or explain how it is done. But if you know it or own the dvd, etc then maybe you can consider this as an optional presentation. In my gospel version, I do use coke as the soda of choice for a couple of important reasons. Anyways, here is my version/presentation...
I have been doing this effect lately and definitely will continue to do so but recently I came up with a gospel presentation that I thought I would share. I know I need to refine and work with it some more but I will lay out what I got so far (I performed it this way last night at a men's mission and it went over very good). So introduce the effect however you wish, you show the can, and ask someone's assistance to sign both sides of a quarter. I remark how coke is my favorite soda, which it is, then I ask the audience if they remember the slogan... "It's the real thing", right?! Now for me I guess it is, since I am a fan of coke but then I say something like Let's try something different for the next couple of minutes, let's say the real thing is God and this coin is us or you (whoever signed the quarter)". Now you want to get to God but you can't because there is a barrier between you and He and your completely sealed off from getting to God (poke the quarter against the can in several places) This barrier that we have is the barrier created by our sin... But thankfully God provided a way by sending His Son here for us. Jesus left heaven (this is where I get in the get ready position to slam in the quarter, then perform that action and display empty hand) then I emphasize by saying He left the right hand of the Father (now I display my empty right hand) then continue by saying He came and died, offering His life to pay for all of our sins and by doing so removed the barrier between us and God (bring quarter to top of can and produce the sound) Just as the coin has mysteriously gotten through the aluminum barrier (open can and begin pouring out the soda in a clear glass or mug until empty) we can now come to God because He has removed the barrier! The signed coin hopefully will remain in the can and can be seen by your spectators by looking up through the opening, you can even pass the can around, whatever. that's basically it and I plan on improving this as I go along and definitely open to any suggestions or comments.
By the way, I love this effect... impromptu and strong and now I have something to work with to use as a means of sharing the message!
Merry Christmas all,

GlenD
