Talk together about these issues:
1. Did the Bible verse at the beginning seem to "fit" the video? Why or why not?
2. What kind of beauty did the boy miss? Why do you think he missed it?
3. Define beauty.
When I was your age, we went to a traditional church. The ones like you see on TV. Red brick with high ceilings, a red carpeted central aisle separating two rows of wooden pews. The minister wore black robes. Actually, I went to two different churches, one like I just described and another 100-year-old one in a tiny town. The white steepled building looked like a postcard.
The churches may not have looked much alike but they were very similar. They had Sunday school teachers who led us in songs then taught us Bible stories using black flannel boards and cut-outs of Bible characters. This was high-tech. Remember, back then we didn’t have DVDs or laptop computers.
Is it possible to have too of something good? Too much chocolate? Too much fun? Too many friends? Too much family? Too much money? Too many books? Too many clothes?
I guess it depends on what it is. Clearly, it is impossible to have too much chocolate. :)
