This morning we welcome Dr. Diana Butler Bass to Plymouth’s pulpit. Diana is an award-winning author, popular speaker, inspiring preacher, and one of America’s most trusted commentators on religion and contemporary spirituality.
Diana’s passion is sharing great ideas to change lives and the world—a passion that ranges from informing the public about spiritual trends, challenging conventional narratives about religious practice, entering the fray of social media with spiritual wisdom and smart theology, and writing books to help readers see themselves, their place in history, and God differently. Diana’s most recent books are Grateful, Grounded, and Freeing Jesus.
We invite you to come back at 6:30 this evening for Diana’s workshop on gratitude. Full details
