Sermon one in the series, “Living Abundantly: Christian Practices for Cultivating the Flourishing Life”

Can Christian faith make us happy? Can you even pursue happiness? Or does happiness have to happen? In this introductory sermon to the series,“Living Abundantly: Christian Practices for Cultivating a Flourishing Life,” Dr. Vamos explores these and other questions, as he suggests that a garden is a good metaphor for the experience of happiness. The garden is God’s gift to us; our job is to cultivate it. Dr. Vamos also offers an introduction to positive psychology, which will be part of the exploration in the series.
