Happy Monday, November 16, 2020
This week’s message from Dr. Deborah
Happy Monday to you all!
Our apologies to those who had trouble viewing our live service on Facebook yesterday. As they say, “we were experiencing technical difficulties”. As much as we teach self-responsibility and no blame, when you’ve exhausted all the possibilities of what you know how to do, sometimes the solution seems unknown. That was for sure the case yesterday.
Maybe you’ve experienced that in your own life; I know I sure have. I offered the main message and (God bless our goddess of tech and marketing!) Amanda Pope said she hated to see that particular talk not be posted or archived for future viewing. She facilitated a do-over and recorded me on Zoom. It’s available on YouTube and as a podcast. Talk about going above and beyond! Thank you, Amanda, for your wisdom and your time to make that happen.
As wonderful as our Sunday mornings are, I’ve sure been missing more interaction with our growing community. In that light, I’m so excited that we’re going to be offering several opportunities for YOU, and all of us, to interact with our community.
The first event is our drop-in Grief Support Group which starts this coming Wednesday, November 18th and runs for four weeks. It offers support time for anyone experiencing any kind of loss, grief or mourning. This will be facilitated by Pauline Weninger RScP and Reverends Diane Hockey and Melody Bailey. It starts at 7pm PST on Zoom (see details here). This will be a time of connection, reflection, support and spiritual mind treatment. It’s open to all, and donations are welcome.
Then, starting Thursday, November 26th at 10am PST on Zoom, I’m inviting anyone who wants to connect, to come to The Drop In: Coffee and Connection, a one-hour get together for casual conversation. Reverends Gwen Smith and Barb Samuel and myself will be there every two weeks to have a time of check-in, and a chat. The only requirement is to come with an open mind and an open heart to being together. The Zoom meeting number is 848 2252 9807 and the passcode is connection.
Note: For both these events, the Grief Support Group and The Drop In: Coffee and Connection, RSVP (registration) on our website is not necessary; but if you do register, you will get a reminder email the day before. (If it's not in your inbox, please check your junk folder.)
I’m also delighted to let you know that we now have a designated Practitioner of the Week. If you are looking for one-to-one prayer treatment support, for ANYTHING, you are invited to contact our designated Practitioner of the Week directly via email with your prayer request. Each week, one of our practitioners has been assigned to be the direct contact. This week is Jade Harms. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much, practitioners, for this valuable service!
I’m delighted with all these new opportunities to connect us with Us!
Peace and blessings,
“The times in my life I've felt the most alive is when I'm having a connection with people.”
