The ADN and Health Commissions held their first “From Scared to Sacred” event last month, the first of a monthly, four-part series meant to help us reflect on how the pandemic affected us and how we reframe our lives in light of our experiences. We will provide spiritual, mental health, and other reflective resources for growth and healing from fear, grief, and loss, focusing on a single theme for each gathering. Our second event will take place on Aug. 29th at 12 noon, and the theme is “joy.” Child care for those under 12 will be provided with advance reservation; the series is open to youth 12 and up. It will include a time of eating lunch together (BYO), presentations, and discussion, wrapping up at 1:15. The deadline for child care registration is Wed., Aug. 25th. Please register for the event here. Materials from the first event, focusing on the theme of fear, are listed below. For questions, please contact SueJeanne Koh at firstname.lastname@example.org. Subsequent dates for the series are: Sept. 26th, and Oct. 24th. On the weekend of Oct. 30/31, we will conduct worship services memorializing our experiences.
