In this third episode to "The Little Pot" and "The Tea Pot", the potter forms a new vessel and names it, Oil Lamp. After Oil Lamp is created, it is too shy to stay on fire for the potter and continually hides under a bowl. As it becomes braver and braver, It must learn to shine in a way that will not burn the other vessels. Through the testimonies of Tea Pot and Little Pot, Oil Lamp realizes it can be brave enough to shine for its creator. This allegory will help children identify the light their potter ignites in each of them as they learn the importance of sharing their own life stories. They will discover how to overcome their own fears and shine the light within themselves.
