Thanksgiving Conversation Cards

November 22, 2017


I am so grateful for Thanksgiving this year. The world and the Church feel extra heavy lately and I think we are all just a little weary and in dire need of casserole, some football, our people–and a pause in the chaos to be grateful for what is right in front of us.

This week is a chance to host a “friendsgiving” or catch up with family–maybe family you haven’t seen since last year. And I want to give you a challenge this year as you head to bake the turkey and gather around the table with some of your closest or distant relatives and friends.

Here’s what’s easy for us: We walk into the kitchen, hug our cousin, who we’ve only kept up with through Instagram, and she asks, “How have you been?”

We answer with: “Good! Busy, but things are going well! You?”

Then we move along to discuss the macaroni and cheese. Or politics. Or our favorite Netflix series.

So, let’s not take for granted the time we have with our people. I’ve created a set of conversation cards to help you go deeper this year. Now you get to be the one in your family to be a little bold and a little brave and take the conversation away from the food (and politics) and start a conversation that matters.

    We have our big family get-together at Thanksgiving this year instead of Christmas. My husband’s folks and all the progeny of their four kids and spouses: 12 grandkids and 8 spouses, 15 great-grandkids and 1 spouse. That is 46, if we would all be there. This year there will be around 35-37! There are MANY conversations going on at once!❣️

        The download button is not in the email to subs ribers. So I had to subscribe again to get the link to cards. That seems inefficient. Thanks!

    • Hi Sally-which link? You will need to submit your email in the form to get the cards!
