United Church News - September 2022

Book Study - Wednesdays at 10am in Grace Chapel. You're invited to attend our weekly book study beginning Wednesday, September 7th at 10 am in the chapel. Parish Nurse Lisa Dunbar and her friend Dana will be leading discussions using resources from The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk, MD and the Psalms to look at the hurting and healing aspects of our thoughts and feelings. Join us, invite a friend, and let’s explore together.  The study will cover how our body, brain, emotions and spirit function together. We will be referencing a book called “The Body Keeps the Score” as well as other sources to help us sort out and understand ourselves better. We are changing the location of the Study to the Meeting Room located in the same building as the chapel and my office. Please let Lisa Dunbar know if you have any questions. The sign-up sheet is in the back of the sanctuary on the table.

THE NATIONAL FRIENDSHIP LINE, 1-800-971-0016, is a phone number for seniors (60 years of age and older) who can call once a day, every day, if they would like social interaction or ask health questions. They can even request a volunteer to make an outgoing call directly to a loved one who might be in need but is reluctant to reach out.  Trained volunteers are available to take the calls and each year they make and/or receive 100,000 phone calls with seniors.  The Friendship Line is sponsored by the Institute of Aging (IOA).  This service is free. 

THE NATIONAL SUICIDE PREVENTION HOTLINE, 1-800-273-8255, provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones, and best practices for professionals.
