This activity-oriented series of children's sermons deals with word opposites. The lessons are based on the example found in Jesus' teachings that the bad is followed by the good, through trust and obedience in God.

This series of children's messages help young people understand the suffering and death of Jesus in a positive way. Throughout the series the children are asked to participate with word opposites. The lessons are planned so that each child may take back to the pew an activity sheet. One side is a coloring page for younger children. The other side has word puzzles and games for older children.

The usefulness of this series will become evident:
They require little preparation
The coloring pages will appeal to the younger children
The activity page will keep older children interested
The series can be used for worship services, Sunday school, or other times

The Bad And The Good: Children's Sermons for Lent and Easter by Julia Bland is a wonderful presentation of the gospel for children. Word opposites help introduce each Lenten theme. Anyone using this material for teaching children will be pleased to find carefully thought-out lesson plans filled with helpful age level appropriate activities.
