Fall 2019 Events
 
Mindful Parenting Picture
Parenting Mindfully Workshop
Sunday, November 17, 2019   6:00-7:30 pm
at Eastminster
 
 
Join us for an exploration of mindfulness led by school psychologist Jelena Popovic. We will reflect on how this practice of nourishing ourselves as parents can help us grow kind, poised and resilient children and teenagers. We will focus on the benefits of mindfulness as a co-regulation interpersonal practice that is grounded in presence and empathy. The invitation is to explore how leading from presence and cultivating mindful awareness can serve as a model for our children to embody these qualities too. With greater mindfulness, we become less reactive, more interested and attuned to what is really going on inside of our child. It’s a practice of developing and cultivating centeredness, that offers balance and authentic aliveness that helps guide and anchor others.

Please email pressley@eastminster.com to reserve your space for this workshop!

Narrative Lectionary Fall 2019
 
The narrative lectionary respects the traditional seasons of the Christian church year-
Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost. It also respects the rhythms of the school year.
During the fall, the Old Testament texts will be the primary scripture for proclaiming the Biblical
story during Sunday morning worship. These same texts will be used in Preschool, Elementary,
and Middle School Sunday School classes.
