Articles of Faith Matchup

Instructions: Carefully remove pages 24 and 25 from the magazine. Mount them on lightweight cardboard or construction paper, and cut out the cards. To play the game, place the cards face-down on the floor or a table and mix them up. Take turns turning over any two cards, trying to find the matching halves of each article of faith. If the two cards don’t match, turn them back over and let the next player take a turn. When a match is made, the player who made it reads the completed article of faith, then keeps those two cards. The player with the most cards at the end wins.
