Beauty Creates Gratitude for Glory

May 1, 2022 | 9:00 am & 11:00 am


Today’s Topic:

Beauty creates gratitude for the glory of the everyday world, countering messages of greed and scarcity. Beauty teaches us to appreciate the world around us, from the simplicity of the veins of a leaf to the elegance of its photosynthesis and relationship with biosphere. Beauty is even in relationship with its opposite, and can be seen in the balance of the dance between joy and pain. Join us for this service where we practice being present to the whole of the world in order to experience beauty.
