Sunday, May 26, 2019: Guest Speaker, Rev. Peter Connolly, "Gratitude As a Spiritual Practice"

  • Greater Nashville UU Congregation 374 Hicks Rd. Nashville, TN 37064 (map)

Every day and every week, our lives present us with opportunities to be grateful.  Too often, though, the challenges of our lives tend to dominate our thoughts.  Today, we'll talk about the benefits of adopting a "gratitude practice" and various ways in which we can integrate such a practice in our lives.

The Rev. Peter Connolly graduated from Andover-Newton Theological School with an M.Div. degree in 2005.  He worked as a community minister with the homeless and formerly homeless population in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, Mass. before accepting a call as the first settled minister at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Bowling Green, KY, where he served from 2009-2017.  He now holds the title of minister emeritus as granted by that institution. and performs community ministry at the Warren County Jail where he visits inmates and leads worship services twice a month.
