Gratitude to God, Self-Rated Health, and Depressive Symptoms

Publication Abstract

Krause, Neal, Deborah Bruce, R. David Hayward, and Cynthia Woolever. 2014. "Gratitude to God, Self-Rated Health, and Depressive Symptoms." Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, 53(2): 341-355.

The study reported here looks at whether the opportunity to engage in volunteer work at church fosters friendships with co-religionists; whether the support these friends provide bolsters feelings of gratitude to God; and whether feelings of gratitude to God are associated with health and depressive symptoms. Data from the U.S. Congregational Life Survey provide support for each of these relationships.
