“Dragonfly Times: Transitions of Letting In, Letting Go and Moving On”
This 4 week/8 hour class series is for the congregation who has gone through transitions, is going through transitions or will be going through transitions. We will focus on the steps involved in this process, particularly to endings, the neutral zone, and new beginnings. We will be attentive to self-care, make meaning of where we are in the process, and how specific gifts of the Spirit and biblical stories can guide us during the transition process. The class format will combine teaching segments, small group sharing and individual reflection time. Through creative activities and journaling, participants will become experientially involved in tapping the wellspring within themselves that will give them the hope to face their faith community transitions as well as their own personal transitions.
