Virtual Advent Potlucks
Come, Contemplate, and Savour the Season

Everyone is welcome
to attend one or more Virtual Advent Potlucks on Saturdays during Advent via ZOOM, 10 am MT.   

Each Saturday, there will be a sharing of reflections on the theme of the day tossed with silence and music. It is hoped that most people will contribute a “dish” related to the theme of the day (Examples:  Scripture or other holy text, a passage from a book, a poem, a painting, a photo, a prayer, a song, a quotation … ) OR — just your presence. 

The themes are: 
HOPE: 26 November, PEACE: 3 December, JOY: 10 December,
and LOVE: 17 December.

To attend the potluck,
 please email catherineripley.ca@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link.

Brent Woodard at Windermere Valley Shared Ministry is offering a six-week Zoom seminar on The Enneagram

The Enneagram is a body of information on nine personality types.
Each of us has a personality, and we have a certain personality type.
Our personality type is the self-image we identify with. It comes complete with mental biases, emotional reactions and behavioural patterns. 
     It affects how we see the world. 
     It affects what we think is important.
     It is our unconscious strategy for being safe and secure in the world.
     It is our attempt to avoid basic fears and seek to get basic needs met. 
The Enneagram helps us with self-knowledge and awareness and can help us be more compassionate to others.

This will be an online course (using Zoom) for six Wednesdays,
starting this Wednesday, Oct. 26th.

You can come either in the afternoon from (Mountain Time) 1:00 pm–2:30 pm or in the evening from 7:00 pm–8:30 pm.

There is no charge and no homework.
You’ll learn lots, and there is a psychological and 
spiritual component to the Enneagram.
I’ll send out the links this week.
I just want to give you a heads-up.
Please join us—
