A Message from Rev. Sue & Rev. Mary
From Rev. Sue:
As our team grows, we are finding our way. Each new practitioner shadows with another until they feel confident in the roll of meeting the expectations. Please invite the new practitioners into the opportunity to pray with you for your highest good. They are eager to serve the community. The committee of dedicated members of our Center are investing their time and energy in support of the 2018 Intentional Giving Program. We are enthusiastically inviting you to be a part of the growing edge of our Center. We offer you the best of ourselves in service to the Center. Let us create the perfect flow of giving and receiving in our Center to keep us in balance and prosperity always. We have sent letters on behalf of the Ministers and Board Members, stating our gratitude for those who assisted the painting of the walls and helped launch the 2018 Intentional Giving Program. The Bliss Team meets at my home where we gather our ideas and move forward on ways to invest energy into 2018. The survey will be distributed throughout this month. We celebrate the marriage of Konner and Julie Boswell. We send our sentiments of heart to Patty Bay and family in the transition of her mother and also Beth Aarhaus in the passing of her mother. I was honored to facilitate their services. The leadership meeting focuses on communication and learning about the other Seva teams as well as special interest groups and the ideas for 2018.
From Rev. Mary:
Seva leaders reported on the success of their teams at the Leadership Meeting on 10/14 and Sue and I presented our focus ideas for 2018. The next morning, many baked and cooked scrumptious food for the Member’s Breakfast where we introduced the 2018 Intentional Giving Program and again our focus ideas for the New Year. The Intentional Giving package of information was compiled and mailed to almost 400 people thanks to a team of volunteers who spent hours folding the newsletter and brochure, copying and labeling CDs, then stuffing and placing labels on the envelopes. I met with a planner at the City Planning Department regarding security issues and ideas for security. A committee will be formed to take on this task, so if you have any ideas on improving security, construction or permitting experience, please contact me. The 2018 Budget Committee continues to meet as we review information year-to-date to beginning planning for the New Year. Jim Nelson and Robin Backstrom are planning a communications workshop and non-violent communication program for January - February. As our representative to the Shasta County Interfaith Forum (SCIF), I attended the monthly meeting on 10/11 and agreed to be one of the interfaith presenters at the Thanksgiving Service on Sunday, November 19 at 7 PM the LDS Church at 3404 Churn Creek Road. Our youth group has agreed to decorate one of the offering boxes. Our annual informational report was submitted to Home Office, which sets the number of delegates we are allocated for the 2018 Centers for Spiritual Living Conference to be held in Irvine, CA in February.
