Adult Christian Education
First Sundays: Faith Formation
Sunday, November 7th, 11:15am – 12:15pm, Bethany Fellowship Hall and online
Lynne Baab will be the presenter for our November gathering on “Holding grief in one hand and gratitude in the other – why it matters and how to do it.” Six months before the pandemic Lynne came across a quotation from a psychotherapist who said that one characteristic of a mature person is their ability to hold grief in one hand and gratitude in the other. This became a new spiritual practice for Lynne during the pandemic: very helpful and very challenging. She will explore the biblical grounding of this practice and how to overcome cultural messages encouraging us in other directions.
**Lynne is a writer, blogger (lynnebaab.com), Presbyterian minister, and adjunct professor. Many in the Bethany community know her from her Friday devotionals on prayer. She has written books, Bible study guides, and articles on Christian spiritual practices. She and her husband, Dave, live in South Seattle.
