QUOTES:

alt "Abinadi was a man of unwavering courage who stood for truth when it was unpopular to do so. As he courageously called the people to repentance, he knew his own life was in jeopardy. In your mind's eye, you can see the riveting scene of Abinadi, who had just had a death sentence pronounced upon him, he had an opportunity to save himself by denying his faith and testimony, but instead he fearlessly proclaimed, 'I say unto you, I will not recall the words which I have spoken unto you concerning this people, for they are true' (Mosiah 17:9). "We may not have to lose our lives in defense of truth, but we can, just like Abinadi, draw ourselves to full stature, and with full heart and energy, valiantly proclaiming that Jesus Christ is our Savior. He was and is the Son of the Almighty. He lives and He loves us. ". . . The Lord has said to us: 'Therefore, fear not, little flock; do good; let earth and hell combine against you, for if ye are built upon my rock, they cannot prevail' (D&C 6:34, 36). We must fortify ourselves. That sure spiritual fortification is found in two words—Jesus Christ."  -W. Craig Zwick, "We Will Not Yield, We Cannot Yield," Ensign, May 2008, 99

SHARING TIME IDEAS:

alt Missionaries Publish Peace
alt Testify of Jesus Christ
alt This worked well for senior primary. I used this sharing time idea to teach the story of Abinadi, but you could use this concept for other stories as well. First, I had a clear jar full of marbles. I had the kids guess how many there were. Then I set the marble jar aside.   I had moved the primary chairs out of the way before church started (in a circle around the room's perimeter). Then I unfurled a giant roll of paper about 23 feet long. I had divided the paper into 23 segments with a marker, one segment for each child, somewhat like a giant blank comic strip. Each segment had a scripture reference along the top--references I had chosen, chronologically, that highlighted Abinadi's story. The children were given a segment each. Their assignment was to look up their assigned scripture and illustrate their segment. When all of the children had finished drawing, we had them sit back in their chairs, then come up in sets of 4 or 5 and tell their portion of the story of Abinadi. The children were quite involved, and each one had a chance to participate. The best part was that they got to research their own scripture and retell it to the group in their own words and show how their picture went along with it.   When they had finished, I took the marble jar and dumped it out on a cloth. I said that Abinadi may not have even known that he had even one convert (in Alma, the former priest of King Noah), but that these were the results of his work. Each marble represented a person who, through Alma's relaying of Abinadi's message, had joined the church (Mosiah 18:35). 450 souls! The children loved it.  (Idea taken from lds.about.com by Amy S.)
