Happiness and the Spiritual Life
What is the connection between happiness and spiritual well-being? Surrounded daily by a challenging world, we will explore ways to increase positive, spiritually transformative energy, asking what difference does hope vs. optimism make? We will delve into the gospels, especially John, for insights into finding a quiet place amid all the chaos.
