Thanksgiving provides one of the best holiday opportunities for parents to pass down faith to the next generation.
I’ve been working on some great ideas to infuse faith into Thanksgiving, and I’d thought I’d share them with you.
I’ll share one a day for the next four days. Here’s the first.
1. First, the food: With the excitement surrounding Master Chef Junior,
kids are more excited than ever to help out in the kitchen. If your kids haven’t seen this show, you can log on and watch an episode together.
Serving together in the kitchen just might lead to a great discussion about how kids can and should have an important role in serving their local church today, not just when they “grow up.”
Sprinkle in a little talk about 1 Corinthians 12 and 13, and you have an organic home Bible study!
Include fun backstories to “secret family recipes” and why you serve certain dishes at your holiday meal.
Maybe even go really crazy and let your children plan the menu this year, (with a
little adult help and suggestions, of course.)
