This year, our theme at Trinity Lutheran Church and School has been "Jesus Every Day in Every Home." It has been such a blessing to watch our families learn and grow in their faith lives as they focused on making Jesus the center of their home.
To help them bring Jesus into their homes day after day, we introduced a program called Faith Five. The idea behind the program was to encourage families to set aside 5 minutes a day to go through a series of steps that would bring them closer to each other and to God. The steps are as follows:
Step 1: Share highs and lows that you experienced today.
Step 2: Read a verse from the Bible.
Step 3: Talk about how the verse relates to your highs and lows. What does the verse mean in your own words? How does it relate to us today?
Step 4: Pray for one another, for your friends, and for the world. Simply talk to God!
Step 5: Bless one another. Give each other a kiss or trace the sign of the cross on each other's forehead or palm as a reminder that you belong to God.
We asked one of the families in our congregation if we could sit in on one of their Faith Fives and use it as a guideline for our other families. We are so grateful that they agreed!
