Chaplain Dennis Peters returns to Blue Hills Unitarian-Universalist fellowship to offer the Sunday Service, addressing the “Practice of Giving Thanks.”  Noting that  “As we look at our worlds, we find many of us live in comfort, at least relative to the lives of many others.”  We have warm homes, plenty of good food, transportation, all things  we take for granted. So do we feel… thankful? Grateful? To whom?  Or do we tell ourselves: I’ve worked hard and deserve this bounty.  “Let’s talk about that inner feeling and how we express that gratitude.”

Ch. Peters completed a Master of Arts in Religious Leadership, concentrating on Interfaith Chaplaincy, focused on spiritual care.   His M.A. program included spiritual support for individuals and an ongoing study of different faiths as part of the journey, followed by completing his first chaplaincy at a daytime center for those without homes, or with addictions or mental health issues.
