This summer we are using the Holy Moly kids' curriculum created by Spark House. In the first Sundays of use, the kids have loved it. They have LOVED it. One of the takeaways in learning has not only been the substantial interaction with the Old Testament lessons but also the recognition of the "feelings" and "emotions" of the two dimensional line drawings as they watch the video for the week. This is pretty remarkable since the characters do not use "words" in the story telling. It may sound strange but the kids are tracking and identifying with the feelings of the characters. Pastorally, I see this as such a big deal at so many levels. One of them being a growing emphatic sense among our youngest members. Another is that they are learning that the biblical characters had feelings!! I am so pleased with what God is teaching us. It is so AWESOME!
