Retirement Workshop

Thursdays beginning 1/26
Room 205

I'm Retiring Soon - or just Retired: Now What?

 Come to a four session workshop led by Mary Helen and Bob Harris on Thursday mornings, 9:30 -11:30,  January 26, February 9 and 23, and March 9.  Drawing from their experience and training (Bob is retired Presbyterian pastor and coach and Mary Helen is a retired social worker and geriatric care manager), they will lead you in an exploration of what gives you meaning and life and how you might strengthen important relationships.  You will explore various options about where you will live and how you will handle inevitable health challenges.  You will learn about advanced directives and clarify how you wish to deal with significant illness and death.

The workshop will not cover financial planning since these concerns would be better handled with an independent financial planner. For more information, see the church newsletter or talk directly with Mary Helen or Bob.

During our first gathering, we talked about hymns and how we found our way to Rock Spring. What theological questions or wonderings do you have? Cafe Kindred offers food and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks for you to order and enjoy while we meet if you choose.

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
