Our next Dialogues series is Gratitude During the Time of COVID 19. You might ask the question: What we have to be grateful for during this time of pandemic? Fear and anger, yes, but gratitude? In her book entitled Grateful, The Subversive Practice of Giving Thanks, Diana Butler Bass recommends a prayerful evening review of the day, suggested by the Jesuits, the Roman Catholic monastic order of which Pope Francis is a member. The Jesuits call the practice the examine (Latin, "examination") which involves five simple steps centering on gratefulness.
Join us onZoom to discover what the five steps are and to explore them in more depth.
