The Present is a Gift. Speaker: Emily Quarles-Mowrer.
In her 1974 book Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Annie Dillard wrote, “[B]eauty and grace are performed whether or not we will or sense them. The least we can do is try to be there.” We often run through life, moving from activity to activity without stopping to take a breath, let alone stopping to see the world around us. Mindfulness helps us to be in the here and now, where we can see the beauty and grace that the world has to show us. Join us as we think about ways to be present in our own lives.
