Xoxa, xoxa! UNkulunkulu uyasithuma (iBhuku 4)
- Look inside
God is sending us tells the story of the risen Christ who, by his Holy Spirit, gathered and built and sent his church into the world to witness. On this road he leads and strengthens his children – sometimes in most unexpected ways. It tells the story of the book of Acts and the letters of Paul and other apostles and helps us to understand how the Lord still wants to use us today. Book 4 ends with the promise that Jesus will come again to make everything whole and new.
The Tell, tell! approach is based on a rediscovery of the value of imaginative listening to stories and the pleasure in retelling them for the process of faith formation – “listen, imagine, tell and enjoy”. Each book in the series is prefaced by a description of the methodology and the course to follow during the lessons – no approach can be simpler! Additional resources for applying and integrating the lessons are also included. Groups of children between the age of 8 and 16 will benefit the most from these stories. It will be useful for Sunday School education, youth ministry, but also for faith formation at home. Even students and adults may find this very useful for Bible Study and fellowship groups.
