Caring for the Common Good Project

Do More Good, Live Generously

A UCC Prayer of Confession tells us that “the wrong we do is made worse by the good we leave undone.” Reflect together with your group on that prayer.

Ask

  • What does it mean to “leave good undone”? Can you think of times you’ve done that?
  • What good have you done for others? What good have others done for you?
  • How can we be intentional about leaving less good “undone” moving forward?

How to

  • Distribute the Live Generously Bingo, read some of the prompts.
  • Encourage children and families to fill in the blank spaces with their own ideas of how to “do more good.”
  • Then have them post their BINGO card somewhere they’ll notice it every day.
  • Ask families to complete 5 in a row. Then encourage them to keep going and complete every square!
  • If you’d like, offer recognition to children and families that complete a row – or the entire card.
