Lesson 4: Recognizing the Holy Spirit in Your Life
Use a short clip from Holland’s Opus to illustrate the presence of the Holy Spirit within us. Preview the clip before showing it to the young people. Show the clip in which Mr. Holland is teaching Gertrude Lange, one of his students, to play without music because the music is inside her. Continue until the young people have seen Gertrude discover what Mr. Holland means. Allow time for discussion. Ask these or similar questions: How did Gertrude discover the music inside her? How can we discover the presence of the Spirit of God within us? How will others recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit in us?
Show these videos while teaching about the Holy Spirit on pages 3-4.
