Life is full
of meaningful moments that can be expected or totally unanticipated. Recognizing
these milestone moments helps bring an awareness of God's presence into the
home and highlights the rituals of daily life experiences. This Severe Weather Recovery Milestone Moment
supports the difficult times people experience as they recover from the damage
and disruption of severe weather.
We depend on the weather and know how to cope with the occasional rainy,
windy, or snowy day. But when there are severe weather warnings, we are never
quite prepared or ready. When we are in the direct path of a hurricane,
typhoon, flooding, or heavy snowstorm the disruption to our lives and damage to
our belongings can be long-term and serious. Providing an opportunity to engage
in caring conversations, devotions, service, and Christian rituals and traditions
at this time is important and can greatly comfort individuals, family, friends,
and neighbors who have experienced this impact in their homes and lives.
This Milestone Moment includes the Four Keys for practicing faith outline
which encourages growing in our faith by recognizing the home and family
gatherings as church, too. A simple five-step structure is also included to
establish a solid base for faith formation.
Low pottery stones are individually hand-crafted and available at a low cost to
purchase and gift as an important reminder for individuals to appreciate those
who have helped them feel God’s presence, care, and support while they recover
from severe weather hardships.
