A Grateful Evening with Diana Butler-Bass

AzFCT and Church of the Beatitudes Rev. Dr. Tony Minear are pleased and excited to announce that Diana Butler Bass will be speaking Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. in Nelson Hall at the Church of the Beatitudes located at the SE corner of 7th Avenue and Glendale Avenue in Phoenix. A Grateful Evening with Diana Butler-Bass will be a special event. Tickets are limited. 

Diana Butler Bass is an author, speaker, and independent scholar specializing in American religion and culture. Her new book, Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks, will be released by HarperOne on April 3, 2018. Just as she did in her award-winning book Grounded, Diana Butler Bass invites attendees to understand new dimensions of American spirituality in Grateful.

Although most of us know that gratitude is good — and good for us — there is a gap between our desire to be grateful and our ability to behave gratefully. The implications of the gap are bigger than we realize, affecting both our personal and public lives. In Grateful, Bass weaves together social science research, spiritual wisdom, and contemporary issues as she calls for a richer understanding and practice of gratitude. She will share surprising insights about the power of thankful living to change how we treat one another, and how we might transform our world.

Admission is $20 when purchased on line through EventBrite's, A Grateful Evening with Diana Butler-Bass. Tickets can also be purchased by mailing a check to AzFCT, c/o Michael Powell, 15221 N. Bolivar Drive, Sun City, AZ 85351. Michael can be reached at 602-330-6371 for further information.
