Presentations - February / March 2016

The Men's Center Board appreciates the volunteer presenters who return from time to time and welcome first timers. Their presentations add a new dimension to our weekly Wednesday night gatherings.

Please take time to read the descriptions and plan to attend if they stimulate your interest. Bring a friend to share the experience and acquaint him/her with the Men's Center. Each presentation is intended to promote personal growth, stimulate your interest in a topic, and to give you an opportunity to interact with other attendees.

We are always looking for new presenters and topics. Please call Randy at The Men's Center, 612-822-5892 with your ideas and names. We appreciate your help.

Presentations are the sole responsibility of the presenter(s). The Men's Center does not endorse, takes no specific position, nor does it hold any opinion on the presentations, or of any information imparted, or of the presenter(s) themselves.

The Men's Center is a RESOURCE for the community, a clearing house for information of all kinds, agreeable or not, to one's beliefs. Listen, participate and make your own decisions.

Gratitude

Discussion Leader: Mark Skannell
When: Wed, Feb. 10, 7:00-9:00 pm

Many different spiritual traditions & a number of studies highlight the power of giving thanks and expressing gratitude for what we have been given. In this presentation, we will explore: what gratitude is, examine some of the studies that have been done on gratitude, talk about the importance of being specific in giving thanks and looking at gratitude as a two-way street that involves both giving thanks & receiving thanks.

Mark Scannell, a former Roman Catholic priest and resident of the Twin Cities for forty years, is presently retired. He is a veteran 12-Stepper. In his retirement, he officiates both at wedding and softball games. He has been exploring the theme of gratitude for a number of years and just recently wrote a book on gratitude called – The Gratitude Element: A New Look at the Serenity Prayer.
