Gratitude in the Chaos of Life

Few people would deny that we live in challenging, even chaotic times. Living a faithful life can be difficult even when everything is going well, so how do we persevere when it feels like the floor is dropping out beneath us? A Benedictine monk named David Steindl-Rast said “Gratefulness is the heart of prayer” — and many voices from Biblical times to the present agree with him. Why is gratitude so important? What can we do to foster a grateful heart — even when life seems chaotic? These are the questions we will explore together in this spiritual conversation facilitated by author Carl McColman. And we’ll do more than just talk: we will have some time for prayerful reflection and meditation on how gratitude can be the doorway to a deeper relationship with God.

Date: Thursday, November 11, 2021
Time: 7:00 PM – 8:15 PM Eastern Time (USA/Canada)
