We've put together a Table Talk Family Guide Book to serve as a simple guide for the upcoming Holiday Season. In it you will find a specific schedule of "challenges" for your family to participate in on certain weeks as well as other creative ideas in each of the four key areas for your family to consider doing together. Whether you use this as a step-by-step guide through the Holidays or a general guide to help you craft a unique plan for your family, our prayer is that this will be a tool you use to make your summer significant.
In essence, over the next couple of months during Thanksgiving & Christmas Holiday’s, we are reclaiming one “National Day of . . .” each week to encourage your family to either Rest, Grow, Play, or Serve together. As you join in on these “extraordinary” days, we hope it causes you to think about the traditions you have for other extraordinary days and think how you can make the most of them for the sake of eternity.
In addition to these specifically scheduled challenges, we’ve provided a number of other ideas in each of the four categories that your family could implement this Holiday Season over some great Table Talk conversations. We hope these might become new traditions that transform your hearts and the hearts of your kids for God’s Kingdom.
However your family chooses to participate in the Table Talk Challenge, our prayer is that you will not come to the end of the next two months and say, "We wasted it!" Take this simple plan, tweak it to serve the needs of your family, and make memorable moments together as you rest, grow, play and serve together. If you're the social media type, you can post pictures on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #TableTalk so that others can be encouraged.
Our prayer is that God might use the Holiday Season to nurture the faith of your family so that you all rest in His sovereignty, serve for the glory of the King, grow in your love for the Savior and delight together in the joy of the Lord.
