HarrietHarpistJoin us for a beautiful candlelit walk on a May evening. We will be serenaded by the harp strings of Harriet McKenna. We will start with a brief explanation, each will set a private intention, then we'll walk in the darkness. The peace often allows us to bring up to the surface thoughts and feelings that we need to address. Or just use the walk to "de-stress." Be sure to reserve your spot by emailing Linda Mikell at .

Caregiver Support Group — First and Third Thursdays of the Month on Zoom, 1:00-2:30 p.m.

CaregiverIf you are, have been, or anticipate being a caregiver for a loved one, you might know what a hard job it can be. Maybe you don’t know what to expect. Maybe you think you finally have a handle on something and everything changes. It’s an ever- present learning curve and a host of different emotions. From whom and what do you draw support? What resources are available to you? How do you take care of yourself?

The group is facilitated by the Rev Dr. Linda Anderson. If you are interested in being part of such a group, please contact Rev Linda at . The next meeting will be held on Thurs., May 26.
