Joy can seem elusive in the midst of life’s challenges. Yet the wisdom and experience of spiritual leaders suggests that hardships cannot dampen our deep, abiding contentment. On the contrary, hardships create opportunities to find joy in our God and in ourselves, and then spread that joy to others. We will explore this idea by reading The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World, which relates a week-long conversation between Archbishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and studying Paul’s letter to the Philippians, the New Testament’s book of joy. Facilitated by Liz Otteson.
Register online by Feb 1. Cost: $20 (includes book).
