Summary, etc.:
Offers practical suggestions for reclaiming gratitude as a part of contemporary Christian spiritual practice.
More and more people are finding God beyond the walls of traditional religious institutions, but these seekers often miss the church community itself, including its shared spiritual practices such as gratitude. Bass explores why gratitude is missing as a modern spiritual practice, offers practical suggestions for reclaiming it, and illuminates how the shared practice of gratitude can lead to greater connection with God, our world, and our own souls. -- adapted from jacket.
