Zoom into Story Theology with Rev. Margie - 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 11:00 a.m.

ReadingGroupStory Theology is a form of lectio divina in which we read a short text together and then plumb our reaction to the piece in a specific order that builds personal and shared revelation of meaning. This process can become a lifelong spiritual practice of engaging your whole body’s wisdom in your approach to texts you read and stories you hear. As a discipline it protects you from snap judgments and other kinds of reactivity, and provides a reliable route through the surface meaning into the deeper place where your experience and the text inform each other.

We are meeting on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month, 11:00 a.m.-noon, in the Zoom room at the link below. Drop in—drop out. No preparation required.

Caregiver Support Group — First and Third Thursdays of the Month on Zoom, 1:00-2:30 p.m.

CaregiverIf you are, have been, or anticipate being a caregiver for a loved one, you might know what a hard job it can be. Maybe you don’t know what to expect. Maybe you think you finally have a handle on something and everything changes. It’s an ever- present learning curve and a host of different emotions. From whom and what do you draw support? What resources are available to you? How do you take care of yourself?

The group is facilitated by the Rev Dr. Linda Anderson. If you are interested in being part of such a group, please contact Rev Linda at . Upcoming meetings will be held on Thursdays, May 6 and 20.
