Diana Butler Bass, PhD
But I Don't Feel Grateful!
The Spiritual Practice We Need Now
When things aren't going as we expected in our personal lives, in our churches, or in our politics, gratitude often goes out the window. As we all know, it is easy to be grateful when times are good.
But both science and theology insist that "in all things," thank should be our posture. Indeed, medical and social science agree that gratitude is good for us and grateful people are more resilient than those who do not practice giving thanks. If that is true for individuals, might it also be true for congregations and communities? Could gratitude be one of the paths through these difficult days of division and loss of direction?
While gratitude certainly isn't magic, it is helpful. And through these lectures and conversations, Diana Butler Bass takes us on a learning journey to see our lives, leadership, and future through the spiritual lens of gratefulness.
