In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program
Ask groups of three or four, of mixed ages, to create their own wise quotations about gratitude. Give each group a sheet of newsprint and a marker to write their wise words. Then ask the groups to come together and share what they have created.
If it would be helpful, offer these quotations and, lead a brief discussion:
Saying thank you is more than good manners. It is good spirituality. — Alfred Painter
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. —
President John F. Kennedy
Gratitude is wealth. — Unknown
