Tapestry of Faith: Gather the Spirit: A Multigenerational Program about Stewardship

Alternate Activity 3: Thank You Letters

Activity time: 10 minutes

Materials for Activity

  • Paper and pencils/pens

Description of Activity

Invite participants to write overdue thank you letters. As you distribute paper and pencils/pens, ask them to think of someone in their life whom they might thank. If participants cannot think of a thank-you letter they just never got around to writing before-for a gift, perhaps-they might write a "thank you" for something that does not ordinarily involve a thank-you letter. Maybe a teacher, a dentist or a parent or child did something meaningful that they are thankful for. The thank you can involve water, but does not have to. In some way, someone has been generous to them. This is an opportunity to express gratitude.
