A Community of Love

Activity Objective

The young people will dramatize the Incarnation.

Lesson Outcome

The young people should be able to state the mystery of the Trinity as three Persons in one God.


  • Three signs: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit


  • Ask three volunteers to dramatize the Incarnation.
  • Give the volunteers the signs to wear.
  • Have them form a triangle by facing one another with arms outstretched.
  • Say: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are a community of love. Each person is distinct, yet together they are one God. All are equal in power, and all have no beginning and no end.
  • Direct the "Father" to send the "Son" with words such as "Son, go to the people I love and become one of them. Save them from sin and death."
  • Have the student who is God the Son remove his or her sign, write "Jesus: human" on the other side, put it on again, and sit down with the rest of the class members.
  • Say: God has revealed himself to us through creation, through Scripture, and through his wonderful saving deeds. But Jesus is the perfect revelation of God.
