“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." -- Colossians 3:12-14 (NIV)

Saturday, February 16: Understanding Dreams Workshop
Weekly Prayer Focus: As we at Mt. Clinton Mennonite look forward to a new year, let us pray that all who come and worship with us will see evidence that Jesus Christ is indeed Incarnate; Emmanuel, God with Us...empowering us to clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
Understanding Dreams Workshop: For the women of our congregation. On Saturday, February 16, 2019 (9 am to noon), join us for an interactive exploration of dreams. Bring a dream you are willing to share with others, and during this three-hour workshop you will have the opportunity to unpack the contents of the dream. We will explore the dream as a story or drama, looking at plot, characters and symbols, all of which represent parts of your inner life. Dreams can help you understand yourself better. They can facilitate a deeper spirituality. Dream work can be challenging, uplifting and fun! Mert Brubaker will be our leader. PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is limited to the women of the congregation because of the intensity of our shared journey of loss and grief this past year. Contact Crystal Horning at (540-808-9565 or email@example.com ) with any questions.
