Honoring Everyone’s Father
One idea that came out of the Ward Mother’s Day Gift Survey needs to be shared and can easily be done for Father’s Day as well. The reason I like this ideas is because it removes the awkwardness of trying to honor those that struggle with motherhood or fatherhood because they are single, divorced, etc.
The reader suggested that the ward purchase red and white carnations. Each adult that attends that day gets a red flower if their father is alive and a white flower if their father is deceased. That way everyone walks around with this token that honors their father. It generates conversation and brings a sweet spirit to the meeting.
