Way of Love Bingo Cards
From the Rev. Furman Buchanan of St. Peter’s, Greenville, S.C.: “Although this resource could be used by anyone on their own, it might work best as part of a parish or other community activity. At my parish, we plan to invite people to participate in building some Holy Habits in this time of separation in accord with the Way of Love–turning from old norms, praying, worshipping, learning, serving, being generous, and resting.

We are asking people who achieve a full line (BINGO) to take a picture of their card and send in their name to be entered into a drawing. Each week we will select 3 or 4 winners of a small gift certificate at a local business as a way of supporting small local businesses in the process!”
