Couple Enrichment is a program design to help good relationships become even better. It is based on "The Three Golden Threads" -- Effective Communication, Creative Use of Conflict, and Commitment to Growth. It's not for couples in crisis.
Steve and Signey are presenting a day-long (9 AM to 8 PM) Couple Enrichment Workshop on October 25. Once you have taken a Couple Enrichment Workshop, you have the opportunity to be part of a circle of couples meeting once a month to support each other.
In advance of the workshop, Steve and Signey will be holding two "Taste of CE" evenings--one on Tuesday, September 30th and one on Friday, October 17. A simple dinner will be provided, followed by a presentation and activities. There will also be couples in attendance who have been part of the Ottawa Couple Enrichment community for several years and will let you know of the benefits they have experienced. Join us for one of these evenings! Please RSVP so we know how many to expect for dinner. (If you don't have Steve or Signy's e-mail address, you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll pass it along.)
The Ottawa Monthly Meeting has a hearing system. The system has been more heavily used in the past, and could be again. If you are a regular, speak with the hearing system committee to arrange to have a headset provided to you each week. If you are a newcomer, please speak with the greeter at the door to make arrangements. And, finally, if you have a wireless receiver for your own hearing aid, feel free to put it on the table in the centre of the room.
The Peace and Social Concerns Committee of the Ottawa Monthly Meeting had a table of informational materials at the People's Social Forum, which took place in Ottawa, August 21-24. We shared materials about CFSC's work on Aboriginal concerns and about Quaker peace efforts, such as the upcoming Youth and Militarization Conference.
And all Friends take heed of jars and strife, for that is it, which will eat out the Seed in you; therefore let not that harbour in your bosoms, lest it eat out the good in you, and ye come to suffer in your own particulars. Therefore dwell in love and life, and in the Power and Seed of God, which is the honourable, royal state.
