217. Looking at Biblical themes using short secular video stories

Watching short secular video's in your children's ministry or youth work to help children and teenagers talk about Bible stories and Biblical themes

At a workshop organised by the Dutch Reformed Church I met Nikolaas Sintobin. Nikolaas is a Jesuit and an internet pastor. As an internet pastor, he has developed his own pedagogical model using YouTube-films to help people to deepen and develop their inner lives: www.seeingmore.org/.  I am convinced that his ideas are a great tool to be used within your children's work and / or youth work.
