Use this secular YouTube video to hold a creative discussion with the children about the Bible story of the baptism of Jesus
Samantha, the white chick, falls in love with Jay, one of the Angry Birds blue chicks. Jay tries to avoid her in all kinds of ways, but Samantha keeps persevering and looking for him, until she finds a caterpillar and forgets Jay. And in the end Jay is quite sorry that she’s no longer infatuated with him.
How does this film apply to today's Bible story?
In today's Bible story we hear God's voice speaking to His Son full of love. It is a love that seeks and always perseveres. Using this video you can compare Samantha's 'love' for Jay, God's love for Jesus and God's love for us.
It’s important to always watch the film yourself beforehand and to ask yourself:
- do I want to show this to the children?
- does this film work in the context and age-range of the children I am working with?
