Discovery: Living Our Thanks in Advent

Sundays at 10am Online

We often think of gratitude as thanks for something after it happens. But what does it mean to live a life of thanks in anticipation of our deepest hopes and longings? 

ResolutionsJoin Diana Butler Bass as she kicks off Discovery's Advent exploration of this holiness practice on December 6 at 10am. A Q&A session will follow. Parishioners will continue the discussion about gratitude on December 13 and 20.

A recording of the December 6 event will posted on this page for those who miss the session.
