Video - OT: Isaiah - For peace
Use this secular YouTube video to hold a creative discussion with the children about the Bible story.
A boy and a girl are standing on a mountain of weapons with a balloon in the shape of a heart. Around them, war is taking place. For a moment it seems as if the weapons will wipe them out too, but at the end there is peace. The boy and the girl are still there and only love remains.
Why does this film fit in with today's Bible story?
Isaiah sees in his dream how the people of all nations will melt down their weapons out of love for God, so that there will be peace and love will ultimately triumph.
This idea is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on Isaiah' dream: Peace in this world.
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?
