Lent 2020 Introductory Week

The book we are sharing is called Finding God in the Mess. It is available through Loyola Press 

Some wonderings for this week:
  • How do you remain connected to the "source of life", particularly when life seems to be draining from you?
  • What do others...and God... see you offering to the world that you don't see in yourself? 
  • How can you find grace and gratitude as you ponder these thoughts?

Welcome to the Grace and Gratitude Blog

Welcome to Sharing Grace and Gratitude!
For many years I have shared special thoughts with a small group of women around a chosen text. We met face-2-face in my home during Advent and Lent. Lives have become too busy for that to continue, so I am trying this way of sharing. I wish I could change the title, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do that. The title I would have chosen is built around a beautiful journal a close friend in Christ shared with me. I plan to include some thoughts from that journal as well.
Please know that only people I have invited to this blog will have the address.
