Family meals… Family Learning… Family Sharing… Family Growing… Blessings!
- Around the table today ask each person what in this prayer matters? If our actions speak louder than words… then what does our thankfulness after a family gathering say about us and our respect towards others?
- Next discuss the meaning of: “O Gracious God, we give thanks for your overflowing generosity to us.” *Let everyone share without interruptions, explain that listeners respect those sharing by making eye contact!
- Finally, share what each of the blessings, from the prayer above, looks like in our daily lives (feast; gathering; health; work ethic; playfulness; and prayers for those in need). *Invite everyone choose Thanksgiving changer for next week.
- Closure: Take this opportunity to hold hands and ask someone to lead a prayer asking our Lord for His strength while we practice these Thanksgiving changers.
