Dinnertime is a perfect time to get your family discussing and learning about current events. If your family makes it a point to sit down with each other during dinner time, that time can be utilized productively at least once a week discussing worldview on a variety of topics. There are so many unique and intriguing things going on the world right now. It would be a disservice if you don’t get an idea of what your ids think about them. It is a great time to bring about different views, thoughts, and bring the events back to a biblical perspective. Use this time to connect in a unique and meaningful way.
