The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues’ ‘Attitude for Gratitude’ project has been engaged in research and reflection on gratitude since September 2012. After a successful conference on the psychology and philosophy of gratitude in November 2013, we are now pleased to offer this opportunity for conversation to theologians and people of all faiths on the subject of gratitude to God and gratitude to others.
