Kindness is welcoming


Click on this link to hear the story of how God Made Sarah Laugh in Genesis 18:1-15; 21:1-7. You can follow along or read along in your Bible.


Why did Sarah and Abram prepare this meal for the visitors? When has someone welcomed you you as a friend? How have you welcomed someone else? How is God calling you to welcome others now?


God -- thank you for all the people who welcome me. I am grateful for my friends and family. Help me live as Abram and Sarah- welcoming others. Show me ways I can practice hospitality as I treat people with kindness. Amen!


Gather two or more people, in person or virtually. One person begins, saying “Ha”. The next person says “Ha ha.” The next says “Ha ha ha.” Continue this pattern, adding a "Ha," for as long as you can without the group bursting into laughter. Repeat as many times as you want!


Don't forget to fill in your Bingo Sheet after your Acts of Kindness!
