Stewardship 2024

Come Explore the Concept of Joy – Sundays, October 8 & 15

Why ‘Joy,’ you ask?  Why are we celebrating Joy this stewardship season and just what is the connection? 

In our discussion on Oct 8, we will explore what incites joy and what joy incites. Ross Gay’s new book “Inciting Joy” reminds us that joy is not the absence of sorrow, but rather is our response to it. “Joy” he argues “has everything to do with our suffering and our sorrow; in fact, it emerges from it.”  Listen to this short interview to learn more–

In our discussion on Sunday morning, October 15, we will explore that connection—sources of joy, the meaning(s) of joy, instances of joy in our lives. We will refer to a theologian’s take on Joy and C. S. Lewis’s understanding in his memoir Surprised by Joy: the Shape of My Early Life.

Please come join us…..for the Joy of it!!!
