Bring your faith formation out of the classroom and into the kitchen with our Brunch with Benedict boxes! Developed by Dr. Amanda Drury of Discipleship by Design (also the mastermind behind Ripple Effect, Whoopsie!, and Blow up Your Idea) these meal kit-meets-Sunday school lesson boxes are meant to engage families or small groups in meaningful discussion, learning, and reflection inspired by the life of one of the saints, as they prepare a food inspired by that saint’s life or legacy together.
This box is built around St. Therese, a 19th century nun who became famous after early death for her writings on what she called, the “little way.” The “little way” was a habit of small practices of holiness and virtue that culminate to shape a Godly life, and greater connection to God. Those of us who aren’t great missionaries, pastors, or martyrs can connect with St. Therese’s “little way” of building a beautiful holy life, even while folding laundry and doing our work.
Participants are invited to bake Vanilla Rose Shortbread Cookies, in reference to St. Therese’s nickname “Little Flower.” Included in the box are rose petals for use in this recipe.
Included in the box is:
- Biography of St. Therese
- Discussion question table placards
- Keepsake cards with quotes from St. Therese
- Magnets featuring St. Therese and her words
- A recipe for Vanilla Rose Shortbread Cookies
- Rose petals for use in recipe
