Whether you’ve been coming to Jubilee! for 29 years or just found out about us last month, if you consider yourself a Jubilant! your stories, visions and wisdom matters to this process. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for this community and its imperative that you play an influential role in fostering the evolution of Jubilee! into the future. So mark your calendars and plan on coffee, tea and pastries on Saturday, September 8th at 10 am. We’ll be meeting in the Celebration Center for a fun and creative process called The World Cafe. You don’t want to miss it!
Who Are the New Jubilee! Board Members?
…Welcome Bill, Catherine, Pam, Molly!
Four Jubilants began their three-year term on the Jubilee! Board of Directors on July 1st. They are Bill Byrne, Catherine Cope, Pam Garrett and Molly Pritchard. During the months of July and August we will be introducing each to you. They bring a world of experience both inside and outside of Jubilee!.
In previous issues we introduced Bill Byrne and Catherine Cope. In this issue, we will be featuring Pam Garrett. The first question we always ask of prospective Board members is For what reasons would you be willing to serve? Pam responded, “I have been attending Jubilee! regularly for four years and now have the time after leaving my corporate position, to dedicate to the Community I have grown to love and count on. Jubilee! offers a safe and loving environment for anyone wishing to celebrate and grow their spiritual gifts. I find it offers a refreshing new perspective and liberation from traditional religious communities that I have experienced through my life.”
When asked about the talents she offers to the Board, Pam replied, “I am comfortable working and communicating with most people…but I am not a public speaker! I am a natural organizer, troubleshooter, and researcher and am driven to keep the peace and spread the love. I have more wisdom, wit and work to offer to Jubilee! than I do wealth. If I am privy to more wealth at some point in my life, it will be shared with Jubilee!”
Revolution In 3 Sound Steps:
T.A.P. the flow of your power to shape personal, social & system health
Do you care A LOT about what’s going these days but are concerned about either a) adding to an atmosphere of division and mistrust, or b) holding back and not speaking your truth? What if there was a simple (if challenging) way to express your truth powerfully, inspire others to join with you to engage in common purpose, and move toward the world you’ve always imagined possible? Throughout his precociously circuitous career, Daniel Barber, M.S. has studied, explored and implemented many approaches to personal and social change. He has threaded these perspectives into a 6-phase process called TAP the Flow that combines mindful sonic presence with a unique improvisational modality to help you connect with your source of inspiration, feel your deep truth and engage your most influential action. Experience this radically fresh approach to political engagement in three powerful steps.
