Love Is… (Advent 3, Year C)

Resources needed:

  • PowerPoint slide with 1 Corinthians 13:7 on it.
  • Paper hearts (Search Google for “heart outline” for printable images if you need them). Enough for each table to have a pile.


The things that we love can change but the great news about God’s love is that it “never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” (1 Corinthians 13:7)

Talk to the people around your table about people who need to know God’s love, thinking particularly about those who are going through difficult times and who might feel like giving up or losing faith.

Write a one sentence prayer for anyone who you would like to pray for on one of the hearts on the table.

Once people have had time to write their prayers invite them to bring them to a table at the front as a sign of offering them to God. Finish by saying the Lord’s prayer together.
