Dream Group, looking at our Dreams—using Rev. Jeremy Taylor’s method based on Carl Jung’s understanding of Dreams. When 5 or more people express interest I will start a new group! (Recommended reading: The Wisdom of Your Dreams by Jeremy Taylor: paper/kindle) Contact Rev. Bob for more info if interested.
Covenant Groups: These groups usually gather in a member’s home or at the church once a month for an extended check-in and a topical discussion. Each group of 5-10 persons drafts a covenant of commitment and behavior to be revisited whenever a new member joins including the commitment to keep sacred what is shared and to support members of the group. These are not therapy groups but they often become important opportunities for members of the congregation to get to know each other in deeper ways. Current groups are meeting Monday and Wednesday evenings once a month. We are also looking for facilitators to help start 1-2 new groups. If this sounds interesting to you, please let Rev. Bob or the office know!
Men’s Group: Our Men’s Group, includes time to talk with other men about Being a Man, and other issues, as well as activities depending on the interest of those interested. We usually meet on First Tuesdays 7-8:30 p.m. (next meeting switch to 2nd Tues: Tuesday June 12th, we will watch and discuss Who Do We Invade Next?) Please contact Rev. Bob if you are interested!
