Attitude of Gratitude: 9 Week Worship Series and Book Discussion


We have complicated relationships with gratitude- sometimes it might feel manipulative or forced; and yet, when we experience deep celebration and thanksgiving, we experience transformation.

This series is based on the book, Grateful, by Diana Butler Bass. The series follows her exploration of gratitude as being both individual and communal, making it inspiring for any time of year. The bundle includes:

  • Worship planning guide
  • NINE worship liturgies
  • Book discussion guide for adult study
  • Special service of gratitude worship stations
  • Sermon starter suggestions;
  • Promotional blurbs.

Give thanks with Attitude of Gratitude!
