It’s always good to express gratitude and to reflect on what we are thankful for. In the run up to Christmas, it's a good discipline to practice.
Reflection is one thing but when was the last time you actually contacted the person (or entire organisation for that matter!) and told them that you were thankful for what they have done? The ShareTheMiracle Thanksgiving Challenge is all about expressing thankfulness out loud.
At Urban Saints, we know how to answer this question. We are so grateful to you. We’re thankful that you are willing to give your time to make disciples for Jesus. We’re thankful that you are willing to stand with us in prayer for the upcoming generations. We’re thankful that you are willing to invest in the vision and mission of Urban Saints.
So what about you? What about the children and young people you journey with?
The ShareTheMiracle Thanksgiving Challenge gives you the opportunity to celebrate a person, organisation or anything else you love, appreciate, admire or value. Take time this November to consider who you’re thankful to and what you’re thankful for. Take the opportunity to tell the person or organisation that you are thankful and they are valued – write it in a letter or social media post, tell them with words, acknowledge them with a gift.
You could celebrate someone who believed in you when no one else did, an organisation that champions a cause you value, a supportive neighbour, mentor or member of the emergency services. Someone who makes you smile, a childhood friend or a hardworking member of staff. The opportunities are endless!
It's a very simple idea and we'd really love to encourage you to get involved and share your thankfulness. If you want to get involved, there are a few things you can do:-
- Download a FREE resource pack (including posters, cards and letter templates) from the ShareTheMiracle website.
- Ask yourselves the questions... what are you thankful for and who are you thankful for?
- Then tell them - with a video message, card, gift or in person
- Share what you did via social media
By sharing what happens on social media, you get to encourage and inspire others and share the good news more widely.
Don't forget to include the hashtag #ShareTheMiracle....
