Event Description

What is performing happiness, and how can this practice undermine expressions of faith and relationships with others? 

What acts of survival do observers of performing happiness employ and to what effect? 

How can those who confront the pressure of living up to the persona of performing happiness initiate practices of being that foster an enriching experience of life and faith? 

Join us for an evening of conversation with three European American Christian Women whose faith and outlook span three generations.
