Differences that apparently divide Tri-Cities residents make news, but what unities us dwarfs those differences. What unites us is the common desire to make our community a better place to live for everyone.
The Inspire! community gathering on November 1st at Barber School in Spring Lake, is a major step toward helping that happen. Sponsored by Extended Grace, the celebration is open to everyone. Inspire! runs from 1 - 2:30PM and will include music by Jack Leaver, movement by Cathy Gamby, brainstorming, discussions, readings, meditation, goal-setting, commitments, and refreshments.
Homelessness, mental illness, racial issues, domestic violence, work opportunities, and issues involving women and girls are among topics on the agenda for discussion. Bring your ideas, solutions, compassion and sense for sharing.
Representatives of Dan Qualls Consulting, C3 West Michigan's Inclusive Spiritual Community, St. John's Episcopal Church, Spring Lake Presbyterian Church, The Hope Project and The People Center will provide information about services and programs they provide in the area of social justice and human rights. A collection of gently-used and new winter clothing will also be donated to The People Center.
Refreshments are courtesy of Aldea Coffee, Leppinks Food Centers, and Wild Blue Frozen Yogurt.
