Lent 4B John 3:14-21 March 18, 2012
Preparation: Get the book Mama do you Love Me or Papa Do You Love Me by Barbara M. Joosse
**other books you could use: Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown, Guess How Much I love You by Sam McBratney
Faith+Open: Gather children to you. Today we are reminded how much God loves the world and that Jesus came not to condemn us--not to tell us all how bad we are but to save us, to make everyone children of God. Sometimes we think about God as a mom or a dad or grandparent or someone who takes care of us and shows us love even when do do things to frustrate them. Does that ever happen in your house? I have a story to share with you today to help us think about God's love.
Faith+Share: Read the story you have chosen. All these books use images to help explain unconditional love. You can shorten the story and pick favorite pages as well. End with summary statement and/or saying John 3: 16-17
Faith+Prayer: Jesus, you came to the world to show us that your love is high, wide, deep, long, and never ending. Hold us in your big love always. Amen
Faith+Blessing: Make sign of cross and say:
God in my head
God in my heart
God on my left
God on my right
