Welcome Home Dr. Charles!
Please welcome Rev. Dr. Charles Geddes! He arrived in Helena on April 30th after a month-long cross country trek from Florida. Having listened to his heart, his soul, and guidance from the Universe, Rev. Charles is home in Montana.
This group has been meeting weekly since September 2014. It provides a way to check in with others, set intentions, and share how your week has gone. The group provides a safe place for you to share honestly and without judgement. The meeting opens with a guided meditation, and closes with spiritual mind treatment.
Join now if you are experiencing loneliness and isolation from COVID restrictions or other causes. You are so welcome.
We meet via Zoom from 12:30 - 2 p.m. on Wednesdays. To join, send an email to Rev. Jean at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Rev. Dr. Charles Geddes

Rev. Orlinda Worthington
Based on a meditation by Reverend Christie Snow, we will explore some ways to cultivate, nurture, and keep hope alive through joyful trust.
Rev. Jean Sweet
We know that we have an organic, physical existence, and we are also spiritual beings who are companions on the flood of time. We are receiving harsh messages in our physical realm and we need to pay attention to learn how to change our ways.
We also know that we co-create our world, along with 7.5 billion other minds. How do we tip the scales? How do we change physical reality? Rev. Jean will address these questions as we explore what it means to be companions on the flood of time.

Thank you to all those who helped with Family Promise in August, and to those who support the organization with prayer and donations. I am so grateful for your loving and faithful contributions to area homeless families. There are currently 2 families in the program – a couple with 2 young children and a single dad with his 13-year old son.
Family Promise has been able to provide services throughout the pandemic, thanks to First Christian Church which has provided housing. Protection has been provided with the families being vaccinated and disinfecting protocols being observed.
Our next rotation to serve the families will be the week of October 10th. We may be back at St John’s Lutheran Church. If so, we will provide and host 3 complete dinners (Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday, Oct. 11-13), and also 4 overnight volunteers (2 each for Monday and Tuesday). We will also buy groceries for the Day Center,which usually costs $120 - $130. Please reserve the time if you are available; we need as many willing hands as possible.
Training is required only for those who have direct contact with the families. Anyone can prepare food and deliver it. Let Catherine (406-933-5743) know if you are interested in training to be a Family Promise volunteer.
As we have been sheltering in place, we have had many reminders about how precious our earth is. The hope is that you are buried in recyclable material now. Keep it up! There's always enough room and time to sort everything out. More importantly, we've had time to consider how much plastic we use and how unnecessary much of it is.
Rev. Jean is still saving bottle caps to fuel her big vision. Which ones? Any bottle cap you would throw in the trash, such as vitamin bottle caps, water bottle caps, prescription bottle caps, milk carton caps, you get the idea. Please collect them in a cardboard box and bring the full box to Rev. Jean.
PLEASE DO NOT bring the caps in a plastic bag, as we are eliminating the use of plastic.
Take a moment to thank Dianne Nickman, our "Recycle Queen," who takes our plastic, glass, paper, and cardboard to the transfer station every month.
Things are going great, and life is a parade.
The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades!
The path forward may sometimes be unclear.
And it may be messy.
But the shared heart is calling,
and we have an opportunity to make lasting shifts toward love and justice in our world.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your family, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.
