What’s God’s Will?
Illustrating: The common question we all have of whether each choice is the right choice – how do I work out what God’s plan is for me? What is his will?
How to use it: Provoke thought – This is a great short text based teaser for a talk on guidance, or even a series. It could be used alongside a specific talk in a series that gets down to how to make godly decisions, and could complement something like Decisions, Decisions well as another way in. Using it before the talk or Bible reading would get people thinking and help them to see why they need to think about it. It is also reasonably light-hearted, with something in there that most people could relate to (even young parents with the choice between cloth or disposable nappies!)

Critique: Clever use of lots of different decisions in life to relate to a lot of different groups of people. The animation is reasonable, and works well with the music at a good length. Most videos like this tend to teach their view of guidance in the video itself, but I like how this one leaves it open so that it can be used to complement other things. There are moments when it moves a little too fast so that you miss some of the words, but it still works well.
