Stephen Ministry Retreat 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, May 5 - Friendship Hall at Village on Mission
All are welcome to listen to Allan Cole, Jr., Ph.D. as he draws from his personal experience to encourage caregivers to recognize any tendency within themselves to avoid offers of care and to replace it with what he calls “the practice of a more radical vulnerability and authenticity.”
Diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson’s disease at the age of 48, he recounts how becoming more authentic, vulnerable and open, both to his own fears and needs and to the care and support of others, has helped him live with more joy, peace and hope. Professor Cole teaches and conducts research at the Steve Hicks School of Social Work at the University of Texas at Austin. Lunch will be provided. RSVP by April 30 to Rev. Len Carrell at 913-671-2347 or email@example.com for more information.
