How do you define joy? In a country designed to offer instant gratification to those who can afford it, joy could be understood as something that we all can acquire if we work hard enough. However, once our basic needs of food, shelter, security, and sense of purpose are met, does the acquisition of more “things” truly bring us joy? Rather than “joy” being yet another word for “happiness,” the spiritual path of Jesus, and the teachings of prophetic leaders such as Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama reveal to us that true joy is a spiritual practice that helps us see joy in all the complexities of life. This series is inspired by the writing of Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama, particularly The Book of Joy.
