Thanksgiving events - planning meeting

Tomorrow we'll have a planning meeting in Bologna for all the Thanksgiving outreach events that will take place from Monday
the 24th to Sunday the 30th November .

This year we'll have a whole week of school projects done in partnership with Youth for Christ
and Agape Italia (Campus Crusade).

From Monday to Friday 7 Midlle-schools and High-schools in Bologna and Budrio, booked to have our presentation of the real meaning of Thanksgiving.

Our American friends from Agape will talk about the history of Thanksgiving and they'll challenge kids to think why they can be thankful today. This will be an opportunity to share also their faith in Jesus.
As a follow-up, in Budrio we'll have a special My Space English club on Saturday where we'll talk about the reasons for Thanksgiving.

On Sunday morning we'll have a Thanksgiving service for families and friends and in the evening we'll have a Thanksgiving Time at the Café Le Torri, where our American friends will share again the History of Thanksgiving and why today we are thankful in Christ.
We'll also offer a taste of the traditional Apple pie, Pecan Pie and Pumpkin Pie!

This is one of the videos we'll use during the week to challenge our view of Thanksgiving:
