On six Monday mornings during the coming months Rock Spring will present a series exploring mindfulness practice as a way to work with strong emotions. The first three 75 to 90 minute sessions will be held on February 6 (Developing a mindful outlook), February 20 (Finding quiet space in the present), and March 6 (Observing the emotions: burdens and lifts). Additional sessions will complete the series, which is being coordinated by Dwight Rodgers, on April 3, April 17 and May 1. There are no prerequisites for participation, and those new to mindfulness as a health and wellness practice are encouraged to join us.

Everyone will have noticed by now a slow-down in the project. This is due to our main contractor, NKB, walking off the job on August 1 and informing us by letter that they could not complete the work.

On September 10 at 10:00 a.m., we will welcome guest preacher Rev. Sid Lovett for a service focused on peace and specifically the important work of the US Institute for Peace. Following worship, join together for a congregational lunch to catch up with the Rock Spring family after the summer.

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.
