Chaplain Marc Gauthier, COL (USA, Ret): “The Slippery Art of Contentment”
About the Topic: Our hearts long for contentment yet it seems so elusive, so slippery. Jeremiah Burroughs defines Christian contentment as, “that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God’s wise and fatherly disposal in every condition.” How do we get it and keep it? Where and who does it come from? During our sessions we will discover that key to contentment is learning to say “yes” to life’s biggest question, “Is God enough for you?”
