It’s reported that Meister Eckhart said, “Were the word ‘Thanks’ the only prayer you ever say, it would suffice.” (Wäre das Wort ›Danke‹ das einzige Gebet, das du je sprichst, so würde es genügen.) This month’s spiritual focus explores the wonders of “Gratitude.” Rev. Dave leads his “Grateful Heart” meditation. Friend of Allegheny, Shanon W., shares insights into gratitude through difficult times. Church leaders share what they’re grateful for. And for our annual Thanksgiving Sunday, Rev. Dave explores the “virtuous circle of gratitude” in a worship for all ages that culminates by celebrating Allegheny’s “Communion of Spirit.” (You can also check out Rev. Dave’s Blog on “Gratitude” here.)
