KO Conference Coordinator for 3 Great Loves
As Advent draws near, I am excited to share a new FREE resource brought to you by 3 Great Loves. One year into the project, we’ve shared so many inspiring stories from across the KO Conference of how we are living out God’s love with our neighbors, children, and creation. Our congregations of all sizes and types participate in building a just world for all through an incredibly wide variety of ministries. Now, we are offering a way to encourage everyone to make #3GreatLoves a part of their Advent practice, with printable and shareable bulletin inserts.
Each week includes an image for contemplation with a selected lectionary Scripture verse, along with a week’s worth of suggestions for ways to live out the 3 Great Loves as individuals, in families, in small groups, or with your church community. They can be printed in color or black-and-white or shared electronically (and you may have also seen them if you subscribe to the UCC email updates). I’m honored to have been able to contribute to this resource and I hope you will consider using it in your churches or sharing it through social media. Let us know about your Advent practice, by sharing your photos on Instagram with #3GreatLoves or sending in your stories for our weekly KO eNews!
