Be part of Thrivent’s 2024 calendar
The Thrivent calendar has been a cherished tradition for decades. But it doesn’t happen without your help.
We’re looking for your original photos or artwork that reflects the theme for the 2024 calendar of “Perspective.”
As Christians, we sometimes see things differently—in our relationships, in what’s important to us, or in how we respond to the needs around us. It can be our view of nature or the creative handiwork of a family member or friend.
As you reflect on your life, family, community and the gifts you’ve been given by God, what puts things into perspective for you? It may be time with someone you love, a volunteer activity, a favorite place, or simply a walk in nature.
