Run an playful activity using these details

In a group, play a game to create shared meaning about principles.

  1. Distribute Bingo sheets to people in group. Make your own or use these prepared sets:
  2. Put relevant set of PRINCIPLE cards into a bag.
  3. Pass around the bag and have someone blindly select a card.
  4. Read the card to self.
  5. Out loud, name the Principle. Share thoughts about the meaning of the Principle, or Name an action relevant to a current situation to apply the Principle.
  6. If the Principle is on the Bingo sheet, people mark it. (They also write down any Notes as the Bingo sheet becomes their own handout/note resource.)
  7. Repeat steps 3-6 six times or until there is a Bingo (i.e. A whole row of Principles marked off on their sheet.)


Bingo is a game in which players mark off items on sheets as the items are drawn randomly by a caller, the winner being the first person to mark off all their items.


A more advanced version of the game:

Instead of placing PRINCIPLE cards into a bag, prepare a set of short stories where each story illustrates one principle. When a story is selected randomly from the bag, the group decides and agrees on which principle it illustrates, then mark that principle off their individual Bingo sheets.
