Illustrating: A poem set to music accompanied by images and words, this animation asks questions about what it means to know God – How can we know God? Do all religions lead to God? The last line sums up it’s getting at: “Could all of these faiths hold some of the truth or is there just one way that I can know you?”
How to use it: Provoke thought – Use this video alongside a talk about how we can know God. It would complement verses like John 17:3, Acts 4:12, and Hebrews 1:1-3. The truth of the gospel is that we can know about God and actually know God personally because he has revealed himself in his Son, Jesus, and made it possible for us to draw near to him because of his death and resurrection. Jesus is the problem to all of the world’s answers.
Permission for use: This was made by UCCF (the christian unions) in the UK. Like the others in the Lunchbox series, they have made it available for download here so that you can use it in your ministry setting. Do send them an email to let them know how you use it so they can be encouraged by how their resources are being used.
Critique: At 2min 39 secs, it’s just a little bit long for my liking, but only by a touch – certainly not too long to use. The animation is good and complements the poem well and matches the rhythm of the music.
