Morning Workshops

Being & Becoming: Looking Back to Move Forward – Rev. Debbie Blue
“How do you know where you’re going when you don’t know where you’ve been?”
In this workshop, participants will explore a life in remembering God’s presence and provision in the past and the present, while reimaging God’s purpose for the future. With the thoughts of Soren Kierkegaard, “Life can only be understood backwards:
but it must be lived forward,” and the West African concept of Sankofa – “Looking back to move forward,” we will create a space to review and renew.

The Gentle Art of Coping with Aging – Colleen Felts, RN
Aging is a part of life! There are many challenges as we approach that point when we see silver threads among the gold. The Center for Disease has developed a fifteen hour evidenced based class that helps with concerns related to aging. Colleen will present highlights from these classes. Included will be tips for individuals, as well as churches, as to ways to cope with the aging process and health related needs. Tools for managing aging will be presented in a positive and fresh way.
