4:30 p.m. The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting
Room: TBD; Facilitator: Laura Rothacker
Class will run once a month beginning Oct. 8
What would it mean for our families, our community, and even the world if a critical mass of parents raised children who knew their worth and connected with others from a place of empathy and respect? Kids Club parents are invited to join the video course “The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting: a Wholehearted Revolution” by Brene Brown. We will explore what it means to raise children with courage, compassion, and connection. The class will be held once a month starting October 8 from 4:30-5:30 and then dinner together from 5:30-6 pm.
An Online Exploration of Faith
Facilitator: Mary Kay Hymes
This will be exclusively online with a simple login to gain access to the website, managed by Mary Kay Hymes.
As you read through the Bible, do you often focus on the visual images that come through and find yourself remembering best through pictures? Each week (or two), you will be asked to read one of the books, reflect on the meaning for you, and share your thoughts and imagery you discover. Using Ann Osborne’s Prayer flags, we will consider these visual interpretations as well as ones you find to help you find wisdom, directives and peace through the scriptures. You don’t have to be an artist, just one who wishes to grow in faith and spirituality. To participate visit: Hpccybercircle.wordpress.com
