Worship led by Rev. Shayna Appel

This Sunday’s service will be presented by Rev. Shayna Appel. 

“Memory & Resiliency; Traumatized or Trauma Grown?”

“Most trauma survivors…will suffer, sometimes for years.  But, over the last few decades, psychologists have discovered that suffering is not the end of the story: with the right circumstances and support, [some] survivors actually benefit in surprising ways…The suffering they endure actually acts as a catalyst, enabling them to emerge stronger, more focused, and seeking meaning in their lives.” [From “Upside” by Jim Rendon]

As we delve deeper into our monthly theme regarding memory, the practice of honest remembrance and honoring the shoulders on which we stand, we will explore together the spiritual dimensions of turning break-downs into break-throughs.
