Is it possible to live life in a perpetual state of gratitude? What sort of impact might that have on you, your family, your community, the world?
Today's reflection began with this meditation: A Good Day with Brother David Steindl-Rast
All of us experience challenges in our lives. Often there are aspects of those challenging times that offer gifts and opportunities for us, but are often missed as we remain steeped in the difficulty. On this Sunday we will explore broadening our perception of those challenging times to appreciate the potential gifts they offer.
At the heart of finding meaning at the end of life is gratitude. It’s easy to feel grateful when things are going well, but could we be grateful even for this time?
We often find inspiration and insight while facing significant challenges. Forrest Church was a prominent Unitarian Universalist minister who was given a terminal diagnosis in February 2008. He wrote a book called Love and Death, summarizing his life beliefs and sharing some insights on loss and love. It was a valuable contribution to those he left behind, and Dave will be sharing some of Forrest Church's thoughts.
