Nori Rost: Grace, Gratitude, and Gravy

By November 26, 2023No Comments

For many people, this weekend is synonymous with these words. We gathered around tables with family and friends for a day of gratitude. Many of us also said some form of table grace or went around the table saying what we are thankful for. And what would Thanksgiving be without heaps of gravy? What would happen if we treated grace not as a prayer to be mumbled, but a life to be lived? What would happen if we gave grace to those who have wronged or disappointed us? What happens when we withhold grace? How can we express gratitude in the midst of our messy human lives? In this Platform, Dr. Rost invited us to explore these questions and more.
