STANDING ON THE EDGE OF CHANGE

The next year will be one of exploration and experimentation.  Our next year together as a faith community will be different.  Change can bring with it questions, anxiety and confusion.  It can also bring excitement, new awareness and creativity.  This will not be a day for final decision making; rather it will be a day to explore questions, to be open about concerns, and to gather the strength and skills of a faithful, honest, sharing community of faith.  Cross roads do not need to be an ending; they can offer the freedom of choice in the creation of a new beginning.  Come and bring your questions, bring your listening skills and most of all bring your curiosity for this new challenge.

Still Listening…Voices Among us

Posted in Steinbach United

pastedimageHurry! Get your Tickets to Steinbach Neighbours for Community’s production of Still Listening… Voices Among Us.

Last fall Steinbach Neighbours for Community brought the production called Listening for Grace by Ted & Co to Steinbach. Listening for Grace was a theatrical production presenting the thoughts and concerns of a father who learned that his son was gay. Our intention was to encourage conversations, starting in a safe neutral space, for respectful dialogue on the topic of sexual orientation.  This year  the conversation is continuing with a  with a local production.

Still Listening… Voices Among Us is a collection of stories from people living right here in our communities in Southeastern Manitoba. The stories represent a wide range of people who are part of the LGBTTQI* community. Some of the stories come from LGBTTQI* people, some from family, friends and allies of LGBTTQI*. Each story is a story from the heart, lived by each person who was willing to share their journeys.  Neighbours for Community understands that human sexuality is a complex topic and few people are comfortable talking about it, but as one of the participants said “doing nothing out of fear doesn’t change anything”.

Check out the Events Calendar for all the date, time and ticket details.

Mental health is a term that is used widely and mentioned often.  What is your understanding of mental health and how do you support people within the context of your community.  We are excited to announce that Rev. Ron Falk from Eden Health Care Services will be presenting at  IN 2016 .  During his workshop he will outline definitions of mental health and help attendees understand the dynamics of stigma while exploring assumptions of mental illness.  In an additional workshop Ron will explore mental health and spirituality.  How do we understand mental illness from a spiritual and religious perspective?  What can we learn from how the church has been responding?  We are inviting you and those in your network to come “in” and be part of these conversations. Please share this opportunity widely so that your community will be represented at IN2016.
