To take advantage of this time apart, some in our parish have expressed an interest in using this time to gain remotely a new skill, strengthen an existing talent, investigate a new hobby, or delve deeper into a new area of interest. Some lack the motivation to do so or don’t know where to start.
Now live - the CHS School is linked under Formation on the menu and includes links to the current offerings!
This is an opportunity for all ages to teach and learn!
Recognizing that many among us may have gifts and graces to share with others, Judy Linger has agreed to help match folks with remote “classes” (applied loosely) to offer, with members interested in growth.
Some examples: Marge Keller agreed to help with learning conversational Spanish if the interest is there. Fr. Phil indicated he’s willing to broaden our understanding of The Book of Common Prayer. Perhaps one of our gifted photographers could help us improve our photo compositions. Any history buffs interested it sharing fun facts, especially regarding local sights? All done remotely, of course.
To kickstart this effort, please leave your thoughts about what you can share and when you are available with firstname.lastname@example.org. It need be no more than one or two sessions but might continue as long as interest remains and folks are willing to teach or learn.
It’s true that much can be learned through YouTube or the Internet these days but such offers no opportunity for back and forth dialogue. Our current separation makes human interaction so much more precious and meaningful. As Fr Phil stated Sunday, interacting remotely when we know each other yields rewards we don’t anticipate
To get your creative juices flowing, here are some suggestions for “classes” you might like to teach or join:
Do you knit? Crochet? Do origami? Paint or sculpt? Scrapbook? Quilt? Bake? Do you want to learn how to tie beautiful bows for packages? Arrange scarves to good effect? Play the recorder? The harmonica? We can take advantage of our access to shared on-line programs like Zoom to connect safely with others in meaningful ways. God gives us the talent. Why waste it?
