King David is confronted by his sin.

Have time for a story? This story was told to a king thousands of years ago but is relevant to every one of us today.

'The monster' is based on the story of the mighty King David being confronted about his sin. Realising that he is himself, the monster, David must face us to his actions and trust in God's forgiveness.

Like David, we often hide from who we are or pretend to be something different. The truth is, just like the 'monster' in this story, we have all messed up. We all need God's forgiveness.
