  1. Articles : Haiti Culture Experience & Book Drive

    Intergenerational Advent Serving & Learning
    December 16, 9:45-10:45am
    Haiti Culture Experience & Book Drive

    Drop by the Parlor to sample Haitian coffee and Haitian Ginger Cake (Bonbon Siwo) and donate a book. The Haiti Education Mission Team will be collecting children’s books in French and Haitian Creole to take to the classrooms this spring. Research shows that each classroom should have 20 books per student. The classrooms had no books last year, so the team took a small collection and hopes to bring even more books on their Spring 2019 trip. See the list of recommended books at http://bit.ly/haitibooklist.

  4. Articles : 2018 Elective Term 5: The Losses of Our Lives

    The Losses of Our Lives: The Sacred Gifts of Renewal in Everyday Loss

    Sundays, February 18 – March 25
    9:45-10:45am in Room 204
    Facilitators: Bill & Nancy Roberts

    Author Dr. Nancy Copeland-Payton, a spiritual director and ordained clergy, reframes loss from the perspective that our everyday losses help us to learn what we need to handle the major losses. “The Losses of Our Lives” includes spiritual practices and questions for reflecting and exploring.

    “When we intentionally enter into our everyday walk through small losses, the terrain of larger losses, the valley of the shadow of death, is not totally unknown. It is not completely unfamiliar, alien, terrifying, for we have walked some of this way before with our lesser losses. We can journey through this valley of loss, for journey through it we must. And we can emerge markedly changed, but alive, on the other side.” – Prologue
