A reminder: This month we are focusing on the theme: Helping Homes Thrive. Every Monday you will be receiving a Helping Homes Thrive discussion starter for meal time. You may want to make that your FAITH5 experience (or you may want to do both).
Your Plus 1 assignment: As a household, find one “project” you’d like to focus on for the month of August. It may be cleaning out stuff and donating it to the West Valley Thrift Store. Or putting aside money each week to support a charitable cause you all vote on. Or you may want to do a search online for ideas.
FAITH5: Tonight and every night before you head to bed spend some time with those you love and do this faith-building experience together (or, do it alone as a time of before bed devotions, keeping a journal and recording the following as an act of prayer):
|Share… One high and one low from your day.|
|Read… Listen! I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with me. (Revelation 3:20)|
|Talk… As you focus on the presence of Jesus with us during meal times, what does this verse say to you? How do you hear the voice of Jesus? What does it mean to you that Jesus wants to share a meal with you? If Jesus were (and he is) sitting across the table from you, what would you talk about?|
|Pray… for each other.|
|Bless… each other by affirming one thing you like about the other person. Bless each other by making the sign of the cross on each person, saying: The LORD bless you and keep you.|
