Enneagram Workshop

Introduction to the Enneagram: A Two-part Class

May 18 & 25, 7pm, Youth Building

What is the Enneagram?

• A mirror of the soul as it manifests itself in nine different personality types.

• A signpost that names the real sin that drives each type so that the special virtue of each type can shine forth.

• A tool that combines good psychology with good spirituality to help us find a deeper and more authentic relationship with God and ourselves.

• A map of the soul drawn from Christian spirituality and other spiritual traditions.

 

Five Wishes Class

Five Wishes Class

Sundays, April 10 and 17, 3pm – 4:30pm

April 16th is “National Decision Day.” We are inviting people to talk among themselves as family and friends about what would they want for their medical care if they could no longer make decisions for themselves.

For many people this conversation is a challenging one, yet it is a necessary one. One way of looking at it is what would you want done if you were in a car accident, severely injured and unconscious and not able to tell anyone what you want? Do you want CPR done if your heart stops? If you are in a coma, who would you want to make decisions for you? If you have a massive stoke, would you want to be artificially fed? For some people, these questions bring up spiritual and ethical questions.

Chaplain Erin King from Community Hospice will facilitate discussions about what is involved to make these decisions. Using the “5 Wishes” booklet, we will explore:

  1. Who do I want to make care decisions for me when I can’t.
  2. What kind of medical treatment do I want or don’t want.
  3. How comfortable do I want to be in regards to pain control.
  4. How do I want people to treat me.
  5. What do I want my loved ones to know.

By the end of the April 17th session, you will have a completed legal document expressing who and what you want.

These 2 sessions are open to the community. Contact Chaplain Erin for more information at kingerine@gmail.com.
