July 8, the Colorado Springs chapter of the Daughters of Abraham met at Windmill Mesa Park for our second annual
family picnic. We had a great turnout, beautiful weather, delicious food, and a wonderful time of getting to know each other and our families in a different context from our monthly book discussions. Our husbands and children also really enjoyed the opportunity to connect within our special group and play some outdoor games together.
On Palm Sunday this spring, we had included families in our group's visit to one of our local churches, and several of our husbands commented that they wished they could have a Sons of Abraham group. They really see the value of their wives meeting together and growing in understanding of our different faiths, and are grateful for opportunities like the family picnic to bring them into the group.
A representative from each of our faiths prayed before our meal. After the Jewish prayer, we took a piece of bread and passed it around so that everyone could eat a portion.
We are already looking forward to next year's family picnic
