| Dear CCC Community,
This communique continues capacity building for our Retreat House Vote on October 22 and provides information on Coordinating Council actions from our October 2 meeting.
Engaging on the Retreat House Motions
We are inside 10 days until we vote on the Retreat House motions. I gently urge you to get engaged, read materials on our CCC website, and participate in the discussion among the members. I am happy to report many of you are thoughtfully and prayerfully considering what is the next best move for our faith community. Thank you! Here are some key links from our website for you to read:
October 15 A Gathering to Listen and Support One Another
This Sunday after worship we will provide a time for listening and reflection on our Retreat House decision. In order for all of us to participate without need of title or position, two facilitators will assist us through simple rituals. In preparation, here are the four questions that will frame this gathering time:
These questions acknowledge the challenge before us and also affirm us as a faith community. I urge everyone to come and all are welcome. If you can’t join us consider setting aside some time and use the questions as a way to gain your own clarity and sense of the Spirit’s direction of all of us.
Coordinating Council Action from October 2 Meeting
Finally, I am glad to report the Coordinating Council approved expenditure of unrestricted memorial funds for acquisition and installation of an AED (automated heart defibrillator) unit in our building. Through a generous gift and the work of the Health Ministry team we will have this life-saving device available to us for emergency use. Kerri Hufford will be bringing more information in the near future and invitations for training.
Sunday’s around the corner; see you there!
