Grateful Living includes more than 60 of Rev. Turner’s best Seattle Times columns, published over 16 years. In his previous book, Different Seasons, he took readers on an inspirational tour of the year. In Grateful Living, he shares many new thoughts and observations on faith, activism, love, grief, intolerance, forgiveness and humor, all with wisdom and gentle spirit that have made him one of the most beloved writers and ministers in the Pacific Northwest.
"It is easy to believe," Turner writes, "that imagination was given to humans to compensate for what we are not, and a sense of humor provided to console us for what we are." It is whether we take life for granted or with an attitude of gratitude that paves the path our lives will take. God does not give us all things so that we may enjoy life but gives us life so that we may enjoy all things."
