Responding to Change
November 13, 2022 | 9:00 am & 11:00 am
Viktor Frankel said, “Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.” Human beings have agency even when change happens to us against our will. Everyone has a moment after which life was never the same again. How do we respond? What tools do we need in our toolkit to choose our ongoing response to changes that were not our idea? Join us this Veteran’s Day weekend when we will honor veterans with a prayer.
Rev. Dena McPhetres, Associate Minister
