Message from Sherri Dotter
I am sad to deliver the news that I am resigning from the Board of Trustees, because I strongly dislike disappointing others, especially those whom I care about. I would like to explain myself a little. Toward the beginning of the year, I did my first interview with Summit Salon Business Center for a position as a Business Consultant. They told me that if they hired me, they would not have an opening for another year (they pay for our training and have a specific budget to follow). A few months went by while I completed a personality assessment, another questionnaire, and finally, a second interview. To my surprise, after the second interview, they offered me the job and said I could start immediately. I felt I needed to accept the position. Not only from a practical standpoint, since I had been looking for a career change, but also from a heart-centered perspective. In the last year, I had become clear as to precisely what I was looking for in a career and for once I was not directing the "how." When the position was offered, I knew it was the right and perfect place for me. I am so grateful for all that the Board does and have a deep respect and admiration for all of you. I will pray that as I open the space, the right and perfect person fills it easily and effortlessly.
We are looking forward to the congregational retreat on August 4-6. The practitioner oral panels were July 29th thanks to ministers who volunteered to be panelists. We have a possible yoga teacher to begin a midweek day class, more on that later. We are working on a monthly enrichment Saturday series in 2018 with topics directed toward mystical teachings and/or healing practices. Participating in the Art & Soul committee is a lot of fun with so many ideas and opportunities and the Annual September Rummage and Collectibles Sale team is underway, so join in to experience how much fun it can be to work together on such valuable projects for the Center. Rev. Mary and I submitted a letter of recommendation to the CSLR Licensing and Credentialing Department supporting a practitioner license renewal for Lewanna Godinez, who received her original license here, as well as ministerial license. She has years of experience as a senior minister in Hawaii and is now retired and spending a lot of time in Redding with family. She will be a great asset to our practitioner team!
A shorter version of my July 2nd Sunday talk on “The Multicultural America” was published as a 600-word “Speak Your Piece” article in the Record Searchlight on July 8th. The practitioner packets were updated with several categories of written treatments to be available on Sundays, as well as both Shasta and Tehama County agency contact information for mental health issues and crisis. The CSLR Finance Policy and Procedures Review Committee continues to meet. The Board Policies and Procedures Committee has wrapped up their work, including updating the board application form and a volunteer form. A Website/Social Media Team meeting was held and we are looking for additional team members. Letters and flyers were sent to caregiving organizations in the area regarding the August 19th workshop on Music Therapy for Dementia and Alzheimer’s. I met with the new manager of People of Progress, Nancy Alcala, who brings a lot of fresh energy and she greatly appreciates our assistance.
With love and heart,
Rev. Sue MillerBorn & Rev. Mary Mitchell
