“We need a family to volunteer.”
No eye contact.
And, then . . .
“We will host it.”
And that was the beginning of a year of thinking, planning, and talking about possibilities. Hosting a family dinner, the Sunday before Christmas, a busy time of the year!
I’ve written about our family Christmases before…
so you might have a picture in mind.
But as with any great plans…
We needed a back up plan…
And even on Thursday,
Just three short days before the dinner,
We changed the location AGAIN!
Here’s the church basement
In the middle of setting up
Taking our turn to serve as organizers/coordinators/hosts.
The Ruth Family Christmas Dinner!
Where will you gather over the holidays?
Will you be adding any new traditions?
Happy Holidays to you and your family!
And connections . . .
How do volunteers in your world feel?
Do the same folks volunteer all the time?
How do you check in to see if your “process” is working?
What do those conversations sound like?
What adjustments do you make?
