As a prophet, Isaiah calls others to an insight that reveals God’s grace in our lives, “a moment of inspiration.” Have children think about times in their lives when they feel God’s presence and grace, such as when experiencing nature or singing at Mass or volunteering. Using magazines and newspapers, have children make a collage representing their moments. Display the collages as a reminder that God’s grace can inspire us at any moment.
Isaiah was a prophet who accepted God’s call to share the Good News. In his time, that meant traveling great distances to speak to others. Ask young people to think about what it means to be a prophet today, with modern technology to help spread the world. Have them design a technology-friendly campaign to spread God’s message to the public. Have young people include drawings of their design, as well as a description of how it will work and why it would be a successful mode of communication.
