Nurturing into Gratitude with Rev. Christina Jones

Gratitude is a state of mind and a state being. Gratitude warms the heart with nurturing energies. Gratitude heightens the state of awareness and brings us up to the present moment. Be grateful not only for the food, but also for your friends and family. Are we grateful for what we do have? Or are we lacking consciousness of what we do not have?
Join us this Sunday before our travels, cooking, and preparing for Thanksgiving. Nurture yourself in Gratitude to what is present and possible.

"Gratitude goes beyond the 'mine' and 'thine' and claims the truth that all of life is a pure gift."
- Henri Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal Son

All are welcome. Stay for our community lunch directly afterward!

Make sure you turn on notifications for Althea on Facebook so you can be notified as soon as we go live. During the gathering, we invite you to submit your prayers, comments, and feedback.
