How Happiness Happens
Begins Wednesday, September 25 at 7 PM
Meets for 6 weeks in the Parlor
In a world searching for happiness, Lucado provides a personal plan for a life filled with lasting and fulfilling joy, supported by Jesus' teaching and modern research. Do you feel happy? How long has it been since you felt a level of contagious, infectious, unflappable, unstoppable happiness? Only one-third of Americans surveyed said they were happy. How can this be? We've made advancements in everything from medicine to technology, yet 66 percent of us can't find an adequate reason to check the "yes" box on the happiness questionnaire. Marketers get this. "Want to be happy?" they ask. Drive this car, wear this dress. Happiness happens when you lose the weight, get the date, find the mate, or discover your fate. It's wide, this way to happiness. Yet, for all its promise, it delivers a fragile joy; here one day, tomorrow scattered by the winds of comparison, disappointment, or unmet expectations. Max writes, "There is another option." In this book he shares the unexpected path to a lasting happiness, one that produces reliable joy in any season of life. Based on the teachings of Jesus and backed by modern research, He presents a surprising but practical way of living.
The book will be ordered for you if you prepay $9.00 by August 28. Please place check in envelope and place in Pastor Sue’s mailbox.
