Confirm not Conform

Our Confirmation Classes  are called Confirm Not Conform for a reason. These classes are spiritually engaging, socially enriching, and practical, developing actual skills for Christian living. Being a part of this group can be enriching, even if you decide that this isn't the right time for you to be confirmed. Don't let that stop you from engaging.

Youth will have an adult mentor from the congregation that they (and their parents) can choose - with the adult mentor's agreement. 

The group will design and carry out a project to serve those whom Jesus held near and dear (children, the elderly, the poor)  January 26 has already been reserved for the youth to serve at the Warming Shelter, led by Rachel Brune. In addition, they will design and carry out another project. 

You will learn church history (condensed!) and most importantly, will consider each of the vows and beliefs made for you or by you on the occasion of your baptism. 

These classes will begin in January and meet for eight Sundays from 11:30 - 12:30 with a Saturday retreat. Confirmation will be on Mother's Day, May 12th when Bishop Mary visits. 

Dates: January 13 and January 27, February 3 and 17, March 10 and 24, April 7 and 28, Saturday Retreat, May 11, 9 - 4.

Fall Series: God Is Love: The Heart of All Creation

Spiritual Formation: Wisdom 101 
Sundays, 9 a.m. – 9:45, September 30 – November 18
Fall Series: God is Love: The Heart of All Creation

Are you looking for a vision of hope and a view of reality that integrates the sciences, religion and humankind’s place in the cosmos as divine in origin, unifying in purpose, unfolding in its grandeur? From Cosmology, to Christ, Evolution and Religion, to Unity of Consciousness, this is a challenging video and discussion series that will move you and invite transformation.  

As Fr. Thomas Keating notes in the series: Everything in the universe – everything our senses observe and technology uncovers at the highest level of infinitude and the deepest levels of the infinitesimal – is prophetic witness of the Divine. The Divine Presence is happening in, through, and amidst every detail of life and is trying to move humanity to the next stage of consciousness.

Hosted by Pastor Linda, we will meet in the Parish Hall Library.

Double Nickels

Double Nickels Luncheon for those 55 & Up!
Dan Presser, owner of FourWinds Travel in Carmel, will speak at the Double Nickels Luncheon for those 55 and Up on November 14. The luncheon begins at noon at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 301 Corral De Tierra Rd, off Hwy 68 between Monterey and Salinas.

Presser will talk about his trip to Mongolia, that land-locked, East Asian country squeezed between China and the Gobi Desert on its south and Russia and mountains to its north. While once the largest contiguous land Empire in history, founded in 1206 by Genghis Khan, Mongolia now is smaller and has a democratically elected government despite about 1/3rd of its populace being nomadic or semi-nomadic.

Presser has sought out many interesting travel adventures through his years in the travel industry including jungles from Borneo and Argentina to the African continent. He scuba dives, lodges in tents and gers, and tests his nerves on mountains and cliffs. And, he tells wonderful stories about his many adventures. 

Double Nickels, a monthly luncheon of homemade food, is a service of Good Shepherd for the benefit of the 55 and Up community. A suggested donation is $5 but is not required. More information: 831-484-2153.

Tuesdays At Ten Book Group, Finders Keepers with Antonia Fiske

Anotnia Fiske will lead the Tuesdays at Ten book group through Nov. 13th.

There was so much that I did not understand about life when I was a teenager. It was a struggle to find happiness and purpose that would last any length of time.

Many years later, after graduate school, experience in counseling, and wishing I had done a better job in coaching my own children, I decided to write down the main issues at stake in the process of growing up for the beneSit of others. The point of view is that of a psychotherapist.

I have been writing this teaching workbook, “Finders, Keepers”, for the past three years. I wanted 12-year-olds to understand it. The  chapters are only a page or two and there is plenty of white space for writing.

I wrote it as a book to carry in your backpack or briefcase so you can refer to it in the moment and keep yourself on track. I want it to be like an encouraging friend, cheering you on to discover how wonderful you really are!

It is now available through Amazon or through my website, www.Sinderskeepers-antoniaSiske.com.

I am eternally thankful for Brooks’ support and that of the church community while on this inner journey of writing.

Getting To Know You Dinners

Julie Andrews said it best in her famous song, “Getting to know you, all about you”.

We will gather this fall to have dinner and conversation with the goal of having fun and getting to know each other.

You can participate as hosts and as guests. We would like four or five hosts who are able to accommodate eight guests in their home plus furnish the main course and another forty or fifty to sign up as guests for the evenings. We will use a lottery to assign the guests to the hosts. After the hosts are selected and the guests assigned, the host will determine the menu and email guests with a dish or dessert to bring to the dinner. Hosts and guests can sign up for both dates.

The first dinner is Saturday, October 13 and the second dinner is Saturday, November 10. Both events begin at 5:30 pm.

Please RSVP as a host or as a guest by calling 831-484-2153 or emailing Edward Pio at edwardpio@gmail.com

Grave Matters Workshop

Grave Matters: Leaving a Legacy of Love
A Workshop with Shary Farr and The Rev. Linda McConnell
Sunday, November 4: 11:45 – 2:45

The Communion of Saints stretches across time and all modes of existence. We celebrate it at every Eucharist as we feast with believers past, present and future and as we remember our loved ones who have died. But talking about death and planning for it is counter-cultural at best. This workshop is a chance to set your planning in motion – so that your legacy here can be one of love.

Some questions you might have are:

How can I organize my important personal, financial, and legal information?

How can I clarify what my medical wishes will be in the future?

How can I have conversations with my family about end of life care?

What kind of memorial service would I like to have?

What legacy do I want to leave?

This workshop is for adults of all ages and stages. Childcare will be provided. Bring a bag lunch.

Donations of $10 will be accepted to help offset costs.

Shary Farr is the Director of Partners in Transition, a non-profit that specializes in helping clients leave a legacy of love.

The Rev. Linda McConnell is an Episcopal priest and the Rector of Church of the Good Shepherd.

Anotnia Fiske will lead the Tuesdays at Ten book group through Nov. 13th.

There was so much that I did not understand about life when I was a teenager. It was a struggle to find happiness and purpose that would last any length of time.

Many years later, after graduate school, experience in counseling, and wishing I had done a better job in coaching my own children, I decided to write down the main issues at stake in the process of growing up for the beneSit of others. The point of view is that of a psychotherapist.

I have been writing this teaching workbook, “Finders, Keepers”, for the past three years. I wanted 12-year-olds to understand it. The  chapters are only a page or two and there is plenty of white space for writing.

I wrote it as a book to carry in your backpack or briefcase so you can refer to it in the moment and keep yourself on track. I want it to be like an encouraging friend, cheering you on to discover how wonderful you really are!

It is now available through Amazon or through my website, www.Sinderskeepers-antoniaSiske.com.

I am eternally thankful for Brooks’ support and that of the church community while on this inner journey of writing.
