Gifts of the Spirit song notes

Purpose: Written for a Confirmation class as an expression (and explanation) of the Gifts of the Spirit – very appropriate for Pentecost Liturgy as well.

Structure: Simple verse and simple chorus. Song moves along at an even pace and allows for the BILLBOARD activity described below.

Classroom activity – The activity that I have used with this song is the “BILLBOARD”, where each of the gifts has its own sign created in class, and with each sign, decorated with words, signs photos and symbols that the children choose through their exploration of each gift. These are then held up as the song is sung and the gift is mentioned and displayed to the congregation at the appropriate moment
