Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks
Sundays, November 11, and 18 at 11:00 a.m. in Room 111, facilitated by Wendy Mospan and Laura Burke
In Grateful, author Diana Butler Bass challenges readers to think about the impact gratitude has in our spiritual lives, and encourages us to make gratitude a “difficult and much-needed spiritual practice for our personal lives and to make a better world.”
Grateful is partially an individual, emotional response to our circumstances, but research has shown that what we often miss is how much more it is a communal, actionable response. Bass examines this more unexpected experience of gratitude and reveals how people and communities can practice it and thrive, whether or not they are part of a traditional religious community. Reading this book, and participating in the ensuing conversations, will be a great way to engage in our “Year of Gratitude” theme.
