Faith communities across Dallas are coming together to kick off the week of Thanksgiving with author Diana Butler Bass. On Monday evening, November 19, at 7:30 p.m., Bass will be speaking at First United Methodist Church in downtown Dallas.
Dr. Bass is a renowned scholar of American religion and an award-winning writer on the intersection of religion in culture. She will be speaking about a new paradigm for social and political relationships that is based in a spiritual understanding of gratitude and shared communal life with a goal to bring people together in these contentious times.
Her latest book, Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks, will be available for purchase. Admission is free, and all are welcome.
This event is hosted by Faith Commons, in partnership with many congregations, organizations and individuals in the Dallas community.
