Working with and Walking with those who are Without Homes

Our Thursday evening program this week will feature Jacki Coyle, the Executive Director of Shepherd’s Table,a nonprofit organization offering food, clothing, counseling, medicaland other support services to those without homes. Jacki will talkabout the joys, wisdom, and courage for life she has gained in workingwith and walking alongside those who are without homes.

One of Jacki’s favorite inspirational quotes is from Dag Hammarskjold’s book Markings: “If only I may grow: firmer, simpler — quieter, warmer.”

Laterthis month Still Water MPC will begin partnering with Shepherd’s Tablein offering at their facility a weekly meditation group forstaff, clients, and experienced Still Water practitioners. We willsend out an email early next week about this new opportunity. 

The best times to join our Thursday evening gatherings are justbefore the beginning of our 7 p.m meditation, just before we beginwalking meditation (around 7:25), and just after our walking meditation(around 7:35).

Youare invited to join with us this Thursday evening. And if you can’t bewith us, you are invited to  reflect on what you have learned andwhat you might learn from “working with and walking alongside those whoare without homes.”

Warm wishes,

Mitchell Ratner
Senior Teacher
