John MacDougall, Spiritual Care Coordinator at the Retreat

Having a Self and Having a God

 

Many recovering people say, "I have a spiritual program, but I'm not religious," but that's the end of the discussion instead of the beginning. Brain science can now tell us, with great clarity, what the problem of addiction is, but many of us remain vague about the spiritual solution of recovery. This program is about the opportunity to define ourselves as recovering people and to make a commitment to God, and to God's will for our lives, while admitting that we cannot accurately define God.

 

The Recovery Speaker Series is a community event and free of charge.

Time: 7:00 p.m.

Location:The Recovery Church

A forum hosted by the Strengthening Families Affected by Incarceration Collaborative

  • Learn the most recent information about youth in Minnesota who have been affected by incarceration and the challenges they experience at school.
  • Hear first-hand from a youth who had a parent in prison. 
  • Share your ideas and experiences on ways to best support students with incarcerated parents.

Reunion
by Hannah Pittard.

 

Book Description

 

"The author of the highly acclaimed "The Fates Will Find Their Way" returns with a novel about a far-flung family reunited for one weekend by their father's death.

 

Five minutes before her flight is set to take off, Kate Pulaski, failed screenwriter and newly failed wife with scarcely a hundred dollars to her name, learns that her estranged father has killed himself. More shocked than saddened by the news, she gives in to her siblings' request that she join them, along with her many half-siblings and most of her father's five former wives, in Atlanta, their birthplace, for a final farewell.

 

Please bring your suggestions to help choose our next book!

 

Happy reading!
