Doves (Advent 2, Year C)

Resources Needed:

Cut Out Doves (See “Peace” gathering and confession activity)

  • Pens
  • Hole punch
  • One long piece of string strung up at the front
  • Short pieces of string for hanging up the doves

Invite people to think of places in the world where peace is needed and to write the names of those places on the wings of the dove. This might include people who are struggling with difficult decisions or illness as well as places affected by war.

Once they have written down the names bring them to the front and hang the doves up using the hole punch and the string as a sign of offering those places to God. You might want to read out a few of the names before closing by praying the Lord’s prayer together.
