How do we explain the Holy Spirit to children.
We have the trinity and there are some neat ideas you can google for trinity projects….I particularly like the candy corn prayer.
But getting down to the HOLY SPIRIT
and explaining the unseeable to children is not an easy task the following video is a neat way to show the gosple passage with the flames overhead
to explain even better ask how they know there is air?
-they can breathe
-they hear wind
-they see a flag move
—but can they see whats moving the flag?
bring a windsock to class and blow on it or put it in front of a fan
if you have time have the children make a windsock
how cool is this from catholic icing!
We can then move on to talk about faith, talk about belief, and it becomes something real for the children to remember the lesson.
but this is not a one time and they got it even as adults we struggle with faith, we struggle with the unseen.
model what you think, what you believe to the children in your life
teach simple bible stories (the mustard seed is a good one)
found this video recently on the mustard seed
and finally we are told to go our and share what we know about God/Jesus and the good news(the gospel)
and how do kids do that
things they do or don’t do
