Sylvia Havlish

Sylvia Havlish

Come and be a part of celebrating 10 years through worship, the Eucharist, Bible study, and workshops. As we celebrate our 10 years of Rest, Refreshment, and Renewal, we will be looking back over the previous nine events, have a time of reflection, and present an intergenerational panel looking at women who have been a positive influence on our lives at different stages of our lives. We are offering workshops on Spiritual Strength, Physical Strength, Emotional Strength, and Scriptural Strength, then will close with a Farewell and Godspeed to send you back out into the world.

During the worship time, Sylvia Havlish, MEd, Coordinator of Bereavement Ministries at Lutheran Congregational Services and a professional bereavement counselor, will offer reflections/thoughts on events going on around us that are frightening — such as terrorism — or frustrating — such as the political environment, or on the fear that something is always out to get us — and how we can be strengthened to stand up against those fears and frustrations.
