My wife and I had the pleasure to host 18 high school students for what we referred to as G-3 — A Global Gathering of Gratitude. We had students from Taiwan, South Korea, Germany, Poland, Montenegro, Colombia, Russia, India, Norway and the U.S. Each student prepared a dish from their home country. We had a feast! It was delicious!
A few weeks ago, students wrote “One word” you want the world to hear – on a single sheet of paper. We assembled all the papers on a table in our living room and turned the lights down. We then placed candles across the table top, adjacent to the words. The words represent the hope these students have for the future of this world. Then, each student was given the opportunity to share what they are grateful for and/or a hope that they had this evening….they then lit one candle. Students were NOT required to share their motivation of their heart aloud…most did so.
