March 2, 10:30 AM: Training Our Hearts and Minds in Gratefulness
“Gratitude,” author Regina Sara Ryan writes “is so close to the bone of life, pure and true, that it instantly stops the rational mind, and all its planning and plotting.” Living gratefully in today's world with so much that is troubling takes practice and patience. Rev. Megan reflects on what it means to choose the path of gratefulness.
