Gratitude is a serious thing. It can restore us or its absence can break us. When we learn to laugh, we learn to live. In living, we discover the joys of being alive. Join Rev. David Crow, pastor of the Grinnell United Methodist Church, for the Grinnell Regional Medical Center Senior Education Program. Crow will present on gratitude with humor on Monday, Nov. 14.
He explains that we can take life seriously without taking ourselves too seriously. Gratitude is the way to embrace the fullness of our lives. This gratitude is a serious thing but it is far from somber. Come and explore this wonderful part of being human.
Crow received a BS from Central College in 1975 and graduated from the Perkins School of Theology with a master in theology degree in 1979. He has experience in clown ministry and believes that humor is both a gift and essential to healthy living.
