Last week, after reading Koala Pete’s first chapter to some people, it became clear that the direction he was headed was not going to work. He was taking shape in my mind, I was understanding his personality, but that had to be scrapped.
All week I’ve been wondering just who Kola Pete is. Nothing has materialized. Many nights I go to bed praying, asking who he is. Many mornings I do the same. This morning the answer came.
Koala Pete is the Holy Spirit! What a responsibility to properly depict the working of the Holy Spirit in a child’s life. When I asked my 21-year old son what he thinks about the Holy Spirit he said He is mysterious, unknown, kind of spooky. Ouch! That’s an arrow to my heart.
Koala Pete must bring to life the Holy Spirit–to unveil the Holy Spirit within the believer. The tagline:
Embrace the Hero within.
Koala Pete must be the Hero–the Holy Spirit–within the child. He will guide, lead, teach, speak ever so softly, encouraging the child to “listen and obey” the Truth on his journey.
Looking forward to better understanding the Person of the Holy Spirit (Koala Pete) in the weeks ahead.
You are cordially invited to join in on this adventure.
