Do you ever feel stuck when someone says something you strongly disagree with or find offensive? Do you worry that the next time politics comes up at your workplace or family gathering, it will devolve into hurt feelings or a shouting match? This workshop will teach you skills to listen calmly with an open heart. It will give you ways to affirm the personhood and dignity of someone you disagree with, while still standing in your own truth. With many demonstrations and opportunities to practice, you will leave the workshop with practical tools you can use in many areas of your life.

All volunteers for hosting the Rotating Shelter next month are invited to join the October meeting of Temple Beth Emeth’s Social Action Committee for an overview and update about how the Shelter works, how the participants are selected, and what’s expected of the host congregations. Sarah Kruszka is the Operations Director for the Rotating Shelter, and she will provide the information we need to better host our Rotating Shelter guests. There will be time for questions as well. If you’re even thinking about volunteering this year, please come learn more.
You’ll find more information about Rotating Shelter at www.saintclareschurch.org/outreach/rotating-shelter.
Sunday, October 27, 1 to 4 p.m.
Every year we ask congregants to celebrate spring & fall by spending a few hours tending to our shared space. Raking, trimming, spreading fresh compost and mulch are great exercise and a satisfying way to spend an afternoon in shared camaraderie. All ages are welcome. Come for the whole time or drop in as it fits your schedule.
