Please join Mother Liz in a summer book discussion of Grateful, a new book by Diana Butler Bass in which the author explores the private and public, emotional and ethical dimensions of gratitude. Bass says the book reclaims “gratitude as a path to greater connection with God, with others, with the world, and even with our own souls.” The first meeting is at 7pm on Tuesday, July 10, then on Mondays July 16 and 23, and Tuesday, July 31. You do not have to come to every session, but please read the prologue and Part 1 before the first meeting.
In this week’s newsletter: Updates on our return to in-person 11 a.m. Eucharists (with continued access for online worshipers). Also: an introduction to Ascension’s new sexton, a preview of the next Racial Justice Discussion Group (September 23, via Zoom), and more news and updates about our parish life.
