Thanksgiving is tomorrow. As a national holiday, it’s one of the most fraught with challenging conversations.
Here are some ways to make it more curious, and less furious:
- Read our Friends and Family Tipsheet for how to talk to your family and maybe even enjoy learning how others came to hold the viewpoints they do.
- Use and share our Instagram-shareable version of the Friends and Family Tipsheet! Here’s an image from it to whet your appetite. And here are all the Tipsheet images if you want to share them beyond Instagram.
- Get inspired by Chad Estes’ “How My Church Stopped Avoiding Difficult Topics and Learned to Listen.”
- Check out these tips from a Thanksgiving interview on CBC Radio’s website with our Managing Partner Mary Gaylord–”3 tips to keep everyone seated until dessert.”
We’d love to know what works for you!
