ACTIVITY: Who are you divided against?
In this week's gospel Jesus tells the disciples that he did not come to bring peace to the earth. Instead, he says that he came to bring division, where people will be in conflict with each other, especially people in the same family who care for and love one another. This week, think about someone with whom you might have a conflict or disagreement. Take some time to create something for them, maybe a piece of art, a meal, or a letter telling them three (or more) things you love/like about them, and bring it to them. You don't have to end up agreeing with one another, or apologizing, or forgiving. Just creating something for them. At the end of the week, check in as a family about how this exercise went for everyone. How did your feeling towards the person change over the course of the week?
