Memory Week 4: We listen to each other’s memories with care.  

Throughout our abundant lives, we can find simple and quick ways to connect our learning and growth at church to our lives at home. Enjoy this Memory playlist on Spotify!

 

Morning Time

“Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we don’t listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what’s behind the words.”  
– Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Drive Time

Listen to These Memories by Hollow Coves. Places like beaches and trees are mentioned as holding memories. Are there places that hold memories for you?

Meal Time

Sometimes our favorite stories are hearing our family or friends tell a favorite memory. Do you have a favorite story that started as someone’s memory?

Bed Time

When I Was Young in the Mountains by Cynthia Rylant

Family Time

Share memories with each other. Talk about how to truly listen to other’s stories when it is their turn to share (without turning the conversation to your own stories). Take out old photo albums or take a virtual stroll down memory lane though your digital pictures.
