Precious Family Time

posted 20 Feb 2014, 17:57 by Danielle Lewis
In the busy-ness of our lives, especially these days, it is sometimes difficult to honour the value of family meal time. Weall know it’s a valuable experience, yet other ‘activities’ often get in the way, and we find ourselves
eating separately, or in front of the TV, or ‘on the run’ to a meeting etc.
Meal time is a wonderful time for sharing family and faith memories and developing values. Why not try to ‘plan the
time’, even if only some days. Avoid phone calls, TV. Start with a prayer, encourage everyone to have something to
say, about their day, their thoughts, their feelings. And when each speaks, other members can practise active
listening.
