Lucy and Zac were the best of friends … until a war of words—silly, thoughtless words—began to fire from both sides.Such words are powerful weapons that can wound and anger the people we care about. But ultimately, Lucy and Zac realise that one particular word, ‘sorry’, when coupled with its response ‘I forgive you’ can break down any barrier. The Word War encourages children aged 4–8 to use words as a way to build and sustain relationships by the way they speak and respond to others. As Jesus taught us, we should also be quick to forgive, because God never holds back his forgiveness when we say sorry.
