Whole But Not Perfect, Thursdays beginning March 9th through April 6, at 6:00 PM
Last Fall, Dick Bruesehoff led a Sunday Forum titled Whole but Not Perfect. Participants explored what it means to be well in all parts of our lives - financial, physical, social, intellectual, vocational and spiritual. We acknowledged that being well is not once-and-for-all, and that what it means to be well changes throughout our lives. Knowing that it would be a good practice to spend time reflecting together on our well-being as a community Dick+ and Erin+ began thinking about how his expert focus on wholeness as wellness might be a great opportunity for a Lenten study. Happily Dick & Naomi will be here all of Lent and he's developed a wonderful program that will enrich your life, no matter where you are in your journey! The conversation begins with song, prayer and community. Each week, we will gather to sing Holden Evening Prayer, take time to consider various aspects of well-being, and enjoy a simple soup supper together.
Stations of the Cross
Stations of the cross will occur each week with music, led by Rev. Erin and featuring Teena Orling.
