Resilience is our theme for February, and what an intriguing theme to unpack. Elizabeth Edwards writes, “Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it’s less good than the one you had before.” Rev. Scott Tayler reflects, “Ultimately, resilience is learning from your past rather than resenting it.” I find these simple and yet radical ideas. What emotions do these quotes elicit for you? Take time to reflect on these and other compelling ideas during this month’s Soul Matters Small Groups.
These small groups are special because they allow each member to deeply engage with the topic in multiple ways. In preparation for each month’s Small Group, I will send each group member a packet. You are invited to select from this packet one spiritual exercise and one question to reflect on before our meeting together. While reviewing the packet ahead of time is a great way to prepare for group, please do not let a busy schedule deter you from participating. Whatever amount of time you are able to dedicate to preparation is just the right amount of time!
I ask that you sign up ahead of time. Please use the link below. Please provide me your email address so that I can send you the packet for you to review. If the slot that you can attend is full, just let me know. We have opened our small groups to the public to share our gifts with the community. Feel free to invite friends. I am excited to explore the topic of Integrity with you!
