Joy Despite Adversity

The Book of Joy was our Good Faith Book Club choice for last month. It tells of the meeting between two towering spiritual figures of the modern age – Archbishop Desmond Tutu and The Dalai Lama – and their observations about how one can find joy in the face of conflict and suffering.
The book stimulated a lot of discussion about the nature of joy, and of the attitudes that we need to cultivate, in order to experience joy in our own lives. It provided a self-help approach to developing a positive attitude towards the difficulties that we inevitably encounter, and gave us insights into how to find joy in even the most difficult of these circumstances. It did not gloss over the obstacles to joy, but saw these challenges as opportunities for growth.
