A quick glance at the TV, social media, or the news on your web browser reveals how the important issue of race relations is touching everyone, including children. Given the current events of the last few weeks, why not revisit the video of Trilla Newbell's fantastic book, God's Very Good Idea.
God’s very good idea is to have lots of different people enjoying loving him and loving each other. This stunningly illustrated journey from the garden of Eden to God’s heavenly throne room shows how despite our sinfulness, everyone can be a part of God’s very good idea through the saving work of Christ. This book celebrates diversity and will help children see how people from all ethnic and social backgrounds are valuable to God and how Jesus came to rescue all kinds of people. It will also excite them about being part of church – God’s delightfully different family.
