God in the Ordinary Bingo Cards

God in the Ordinary Bingo Cards
Where have you experienced God in the ordinary moments of life? That’s a great question to start a discussion with youth groups or adults exploring spirituality. And to encourage people to think about finding God in all things, some less-than-obvious, we’ve created a God in the Ordinary Bingo game, available for free download by filling out the form within this post.

Play the game with rules similar to Human Bingo. Participants get a card and need to find people willing to share an experience that fits each square, thus fostering faith conversations. There are multiple cards for in-person groups to use. The game can be adapted to online use with the aid of a bingo website or by sharing the cards in any online meeting tool with the share screen feature.

God in the Ordinary Bingo was inspired by the book Experiencing God in the Ordinary by William A. Barry, SJ, so it’s particularly suited to a book club discussion group looking for a fun, new way to ignite conversation.
