Dec 4 & 5: Nonviolent Communication Mtg & Training

Please attend Clarification Meetings at Cherith Brook on the first Friday of each month, from 7 to 8:30pm, at our storefront next door to the house. Enjoy coffee, conversation, fellowship and deep thinking; a chance to get clear on important issues.

For our December 4th/5th Clarification Meeting and Training we will be discussing the topic of Nonviolent Communication, and learning how to put the idea into practice. We hope that many of our volunteers, and others in the community, will be interested in participating in this two-part event, although we invite you to attend either one or both.

The Clarification Meeting will be held on Friday night, December 4th from 7 to 8:30pm. A training session will be held on Saturday morning, December 5th from 8:30am to Noon, led by Jeff Matascik, a violence prevention specialist for Synergy Services. In preparation, we hope you'll read Marshall B. Rosenberg's book, Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life.

We encourage you to come prepared with references, your questions, and personal stories on any of the topics of discussion during our Clarification Meetings. We hope to deepen our understanding of each issue, based on Biblical teachings as well as facts presented by those in attendance at each gathering.
