First and Third Monday Morning Bible Study for Women

Leaders: Jeannie Ford & Lindy Vogado
9:30 – 11:00 a.m., Second Hall

If gratitude is good, why is it so hard to do? In her book Grateful, Diana Butler Bass invites readers to understand new dimensions of American spirituality. Although most of us know that gratitude is good—and good for us—there is a gap between our desire to be grateful and our ability to behave gratefully. Implications of the gap affect both our personal and public lives. Bass weaves together social science research, spiritual wisdom, and contemporary issues as she calls for a richer understanding and practice of gratitude. Join this eclectic group of women as we explore insights about the power of thankful living to change how we treat one another, and how we might transform our world. The Bible study meets 9:30-11:00 a.m. in Second Hall. Books will be available in the church office for $12.00
