Sunny Yates Kellerman likes to quote Rumi, saying, “Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life."

“As we leave Thanksgiving behind us, it is important to remember that gratitude is not limited to a day or a season.  The art and science of cultivating and expressing gratitude benefits every aspect of physical, mental and emotional well-being.” Kellerman added.

She will discuss how to maintain a sense of gratitude in our everyday lives.

There are speakers on the patio if you wish to enjoy the service outside.

This Sunday there will be a Children’s Religious Education program. Parents are invited to bring children four years old and above to attend youth-led classes. Ninth grader Ivy Stephens-Etheridge, a former CRE student, will read a story and lead a lesson on giving thanks.
