[The New Harry Enfield and Chums Video]
31 mins. – 34 mins: stop on “it’s Kenneth Albrights new year party in’it
Kevin” just before the sexual references
In the clip, what news did Kevin’s family receive?
[Kevin’s grandfather has died]
How did they react to it?
Why did they react in that way?
What would you do….
Can you think of a time when you received news that was important to
What was it?
How did you react?
[give personal example?]
We hear news all the time…for example (stick up the following examples):
Hunmanby 10, Filey 0
Big brother warnings issued
Alien spaceship found on Filey beach
Filey Year 9 student inherits £1000000
Mother dies in car crash
School closed due to flood
Suicide bomber arrested in Hunmanby
McDonalds is giving away free food!
Which of these would you find hard to believe?
The Bible speaks of Good news…Jesus says this…
Mark 1:14:15 ”…Jesus went into Galilee, preaching the Good News from God. He said,
‘The right time has come. The kingdom of God is near. Change you hearts
and lives and believe the Good news!’ ”
What is this Good news that Jesus speak of?
Romans 5:8-9 (Changed the word Christ to Jesus) ”…God shows his great love for us in this way: Jesus died for us while we
were still sinners. So through Jesus we will surely be saved from God’s
anger, because we have been made right with God by the blood of Jesus’
death. While we were God’s enemies, he made friends with us through the
death of his Son [Jesus]. Surely, now that we are his friends, he will save
us through his Son’s life”
In other words…if we want to be God’s friend…somebody has to take the
blame for the stuff we do wrong…
That person is Jesus…God’s own Son
By taking the blame we are able to get to know God…to receive help from
the person who made us…
This news is 2000 years old…
How important is it in today’s world?
How believable is it?
This news is either true or false
I know what I believe…but what about you?
If it’s true, then this could be the most important news you’ve heard…
The question is…what are you going to do about it?
If you want to talk further, please speak to any one of us…
