families and sabbath Led by Kathleen Fischer
Sunday, October 6 | 9:30 a.m. | Jubilee Hall
In the flurry of what’s urgent and what’s important, all too often we lose sight of what’s required for a well-lived life. This presentation considers “sabbath” from the perspective of setting aside time for reflection, for mindfulness, for doing good, for healing, for savoring. We consider sabbath habits and sabbath moments. . . practices small enough but significant enough to offer relaxation and delight.

Why is it critical for their development that we EXPECT them to grow? How can we promote our kids thinking things through and successfully solving their own problems?
