The Center will convene the second symposium of 10 scholars on gratitude on a virtual platform over the course of three days -- October 27-29, 2021 – of study and dialogue on the theme of gratitude toward God. The human experience is replete with contradiction, suffering, trauma, cruelty and incalculable calamity, upon which gratitude to God is reimagined and re-calibrated. Scholars will conclude their effort with papers that reflect the inclusion of gratitude within literature and the response or recalibration of gratitude to God or the divine, in light of the complexities and contradictions within even daily existence. Throughout, scholars will draw heavily on rich reserves across religious traditions in the world, on the theme of gratitude to God.
