    Their hearts are...

    All Teachers,
    Please give your comment to this sentence:
    "Their hearts are places to worship God."
    How do you understand this sentence? Is the grammar correct? Could it be "Their hearts is a place to...."?

    Thank you

    You don't have to be in any special place to do it. You can do it in your heart (figuratively speaking).

    or is it better to say: Their hearts are the palces to..."?

    Dear YOJ:

    How about: 'The heart is the place to worship God.' or 'God is truly worshipped in the heart.'

    In any case, you cannot say, 'hearts is', because 'hearts' is a plural word.
