27     Paula Lugar hosts a forum around Building Community

“Don’t Carry It All: Circles and Seasons”  – We need connections to share both the good times and the hard times. “Night and day, birth and death, childhood and adulthood. Summer, winter, spring and fall. All create circles of events, coming round and round again to greet us according to their pattern. The yearly, monthly, and daily events that engage us are never the same because we are always changing.” p22, Mandala Journey to the Center by Bailey Cunningham. 

We will talk about strengthening our connections and our community to build back better and stronger. We really are always changing. Let’s guide our change.
