As I sit at my desk here in the church, with branches cracking and booming, ice on the ground and the fog so thick I can hardly see the old school out the window, I am earnestly praying for better weather tomorrow. But if the weather keeps you inside tomorrow, or you’re travelling to be with family or otherwise occupied here’s another Holy Week video from Sparkhouse.
This more somber animated piece is helpful for reflecting on the challenging subject of Good Friday. I find it manages to give us some images of Jesus’ suffering and death to meditate on that aren’t too graphic or upsetting – though I suggest parents view it first and determine for yourselves whether you think it would be appropriate for your own children.
Good Friday can be a tough subject for us all, and especially in how we explain it to children, so I hope this will be useful for at least some of you.
