Another approach to stories and characters

Pick a book of the Bible. Any book. Take Acts. Look for the stories.

For younger kids, read the stories about Paul.

For older kids, pick one of Paul's letters and see what you can find out about him. What kind of person was he? What did he care about? What can we learn from him? How was God faithful to him?

You can do that with David, Abraham, Sarah, Esther, one of the disciples or someone who followed Jesus - anybody you find in scripture.

Look at conflict and problem. What was the conflict? What was the problem? What did the character do to resolve the problem? What did God say? What did God do?

Just don't forget to focus back on what it tells you about God: Father, Son, Holy Spirit...
