More about the theme
In this week’s episode of “Children of God”, we meet a boy who wants to be popular but who does not always succeed. Sometimes he feels completely hopeless. But then one day he opens the Bible app and reads about the disciple Levi who also had it the same way. Levi experienced that Jesus cared for him and wanted to give him hope. Jesus said: “It is not the healthy people who need healing, but the sick. I have not come to save the righteous but sinners. ” This was the beginning of something new for the disciple Levi.

Denne gang har vi forberedt en oppgave der barna skal tegne omrisset av sin egen hånd. Hånden blir en trestamme og så kan man male eller lime på høstblader. På bladene kan barna skrive ting de kan gjøre for å få det godt. Feks: velsigne, dele, takknemlighet, glede, hjelpe noen, være ærlig.
