Sunday Service: Holding Space

October 25, 2015

TWO SERVICES AND RELIGIOUS EDUCATION 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

Speaker: The Rev. Dena McPhetres

Music: Jack Forbes Wilson, Resident Artist

Holding space is what we do in our caring ministry in this congregation. We hold a listening space for people to have their feelings, rest in ambiguity and gray areas, name their uncertainties during a significant life transition. It is a special kind of support we all can aspire to. It takes practice and intention. What is holding space? Heather Plett writes, “It means that we are willing to walk alongside another person in whatever journey they’re on without judging them, making them feel inadequate, trying to fix them, or trying to impact the outcome.” Please join us today to welcome and commission our new team of Pastoral Care Associates!
