11th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

Sunday June 18, 2034

The readings for Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time for Year C focus on God’s love for us despite our sinfulness. In the first reading (2 Samuel 12: 7-10, 13) Nathan point out to David that he has sinned. The psalm (Psalm 32: 1-2, 5, 7, 11) speak of sorrow for our sins. In the second reading (Galatians 2: 16, 19-21) Paul reminds us of our salvation in Jesus Christ. In the gospel (Luke 7: 36-8:3) he hear of how a sinful woman anointed Jesus and kissed his feet.

This is a time to talk about reconciliation and God’s mercy . Here are some ideas:

Tangled Web Game

This game (sometimes called “spider web”) uses a ball of string to create a tangled mess. It is often used as an icebreaker. It can also be used as an example of how sin can create a tangled mess in our lives.

Sea Slime (for VBS or Youth Ministry)

Slime is easy to make and fun for kids to play with. Mix up a batch of sea slime for your ocean themed Vacation Bible School or youth group meeting.

Christ Lives In Me

I have been crucified with Christ; yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me; insofar as I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God who has loved me and given himself up for me.

Washed Away Prayer Service

This washed away prayer service makes a nice accompaniment to the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  It could also be used for a youth ministry meeting about forgiveness or baptism. #YouthMinistry #forgiven

Receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession)

Consider going to reconciliation as a family or with youth group or youth ministry. And then do something afterwards to celebrate this beautiful gift of grace from our Lord. Go out for pizza together or something similar.
