YouTube video - Jesus is risen: 'The Sunflower'

Use this secular YouTube video to hold a creative discussion with the children about the Bible story of the resurrection of Jesus

We see a flower on a very dry piece of land - it sees around it the other f  lowers dying of the drought. Two meters away he sees a piece of green grass that is watered every day. The flower pulls its roots out of the soil and tries to walk across the hot pavement to the other side. Just before the end of the pavement it dies and turns into a big seed head. The wind takes its seeds and soon new flowers are growing in the green grass.

This idea is part of a complete Sunday School lesson on the Bible story of the crucifixion of Jesus.
( Matthew 28: 1 - 15 )

Our story today is about the resurrection of Jesus. Jesus had to die first, just like the sunflower, so that He and we would receive new life.
