Get Your Congregation Ready Now for the November Gratitude Challenge!

October 2, 2018
The Rev. Canon Heather L. Melton, Staff Officer for the United Thank Offering

In the United States when November comes along, many Americans will turn their thoughts to Thanksgiving and the things they are grateful for. We want to help people or groups prepare for Thanksgiving with 30 days of gratitude practices. The November Gratitude Challenge is offered as a free downloadable booklet. Each day of the week has a similar theme but a different focus. People will be invited to write thank-you cards, try different methods of journaling, and even watch TED Talks. We hope this resource will deepen people’s experience of gratitude and will bring them to Thanksgiving full of gratitude for the good things God is doing in their lives and in the lives of their communities. Download the November Gratitude Challenge booklet here.

For those of you doing the Gratitude Challenge alone, each day the challenge will appear on the UTO Facebook page, so you can follow along, comment, and chat with others virtually who are in the challenge with you!
