Everyone is Welcome to Join in the Journey: Our Path to a New Minister
On Saturday, March 25, 2017, Rev. Ron Fritts will facilitate an empowering process that invites us to reflect, forgive, and heal, as well as value our history in preparation for what we are called to be as a spiritual community in the present and future.
The workshop will be from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the church. Lunch will be potluck (details to come). Everyone is encouraged to bring a dish and plan on being present for the entire time.
The Honoring Our Past – Creating Our Future process brings the entire church community together to tell our story and begin to see the ways we have created identity, continuity, meaning, and purpose as the context from which we orient ourselves to present circumstances and future possibilities. It will help us become aware of how our story has been compelling, limiting, empowering, diminishing, fragmenting, and freeing. By understanding our story as a rich framework of our life together, we will discover that we are greater than our story.
Historical events are less important than the meanings we give them. Honoring Our Past is finding the activity of Divine at the heart of our story, which allows us to shift our meaning-making. As the book The I of the Storm relates, our hurts, conflicts, and difficulties are the effects of not being connected to our wholeness, our Divine Self. As we realize this, we can begin to choose to relate differently.
While primarily focusing on the story of our spiritual community, the process also places an individual in relationship to his/her own narrative and the myths, challenges, and successes that are a part of their spiritual journey.
Rev. Ron is dynamic, entertaining, knowledgeable and, more importantly, has the skillful capacity to guide us into our creative hearts!
