“The world will change when we know gratitude for what it is, when it is rightly experienced as both the center and circumference of the circle.”
As our Stewardship season begins, we invite you to participate in the practice of intentional gratitude. Intentional gratitude is our deliberate, thoughtful response to the many gifts we receive from God each day. It inspires us to live our lives aware of our role as both receiver and giver. As we become awake to the abundant grace in our lives, we recognize our role as stewards in an infinite circle of gift and response. Here are some ways to practice being grateful:
