Hope: A Renewable Resource
To stand at the threshold of years, looking back at what has been and forward to what could be, is a gift. This day will provide opportunities for remembering, grieving, celebrating, letting go, and preparing to move forward. Through presentation, journaling, discussion and personal reflection time, participants will better understand the deep meaning of hope and its roots in our creation and life experience. Hope is more than optimism and positive thinking; it is a rich resource which can be renewed. Hope enhances our individual and communal lives. Give yourself the gift of this day. Guided by Andrea Springer. Lunch is included.
