"The Fight Before Christmas"- McGee & Me

The animated Christian video "The Fight Before Christmas" in the McGee & Me series deals with peacemaking and bullies. Tyndale House, 30 mins.

Please note: the fight scene in an alley with bullies might be a bit intense for younger children.

"Trouble on Planet Wait-Your-Turn",

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

The classic "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" by Vision Video, (starring Loretta Switt), 60 min., 1986. may suit your needs very nicely. The bullies aren't too scary, and the message is wonderful.

Here is Big Daddy Weave's amazing cover of the Rich Mullins* song, "Hold me Jesus."

"You have been my King of Glory, Come and be my prince of Peace."

The "peace" in this song is more like the "comfort and rest" Jesus spoke about in Matthew 11-28-30...

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

And in John 14: 27  

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."

*Rich Mullins wrote the super popular camp song, "(Our God is an) Awesome God."
