Untethered Thoughts

Last week I focused on history, pointing out that knowing your own history and how you responded to, or were shaped by, worldly (or local) events is character building. What we remember, what is observed, and documentation can help us understand our place in history.
On November 21, 2013 for the annual Wyoming Governor’s Business Forum I was able to get as the keynote speaker David McCullough, arguably America’s preeminent historian. He spoke about civility and lessons learned from the past.
It just so happens that McCullough, the very next day, gave the lead speech at a historic ceremony in Dallas honoring President John F. Kennedy, on the 50th year of his tragic assassination. We of course have documentation of President Kennedy with official records and inquiries like the Warren Commission; we have written stories and news telecasts by reporters and others across the horizon.

But we also can hold on to and reflect what we remember. I was in military school. The corps was assembled and through the weekend we had memorials. It was as if yesterday. America plunged into despair.

When we gather our children and grandchildren and talk about our “big history” moments, our words can stick and be guideposts. Our memories and stories add weight to our then past “present” and for the years that came afterward.

Session Two: Word

“You only see the tree by the light of the lamp. I wonder when you would ever see the lamp by the light of the tree.”
~G. K. Chesterton, Manalive

What does it mean to have the mind of Christ? In this session we will explore what it means to think with the mind of Christ. Working with 1 Corinthians 2:2-16, we will
explore thinking and knowing in relation to being-known by God in Christ. What does it mean to be known by God? What does Jesus reveal about God’s knowledge of created life? And what are the implications for how we think newly about what it means to be human and how human life is cultivated?

Helen Mitsui Shared Blessings Thrift Shop in Kilauea is seeking Volunteers for 2021.

Each volunteer shift is a 2-4 hour commitment for a minimum of one day per week. Experience in Retail, Customer Service, and/or Retail a plus, but not required.

Volunteers are invaluable to serving our community. Our goal is to reuse, repurpose and recycle goods — keeping as much as possible out of landfill — while providing our community with access to reasonably priced, quality merchandise.

Here are ways you can help:
* Greeters welcome shoppers and monitor our COVID guidelines.
* Customer Care helps shoppers to ensure a pleasant shopping experience.
* Merchandisers organize departments, restock the floor and display retail goods.
* Philanthropy distributes merchandise to organizations in need.
* Donation Intakers receive, sort and process donations.

Work-from-Home volunteers help prepare merchandise for sale. We are especially looking for help in these areas:
* Games: checking games to ensure all components are intact
* Stationery: packaging up cards and envelopes
* Holidays: preparing merchandise for Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Valentines, 4th of July, and more
* School, Office, Art Craft Supplies: organizing and packaging materials for reuse
* Toys: sorting, cleaning, and packaging toys
* Hardware: sorting and packaging tools, materials, electronics and appliances

*Team players with a genuine interest in serving the community and contributing to the reuse movement.
* Willingness to support COVID-19 safety measures set by Shared Blessings
* Physically able to lift 50 pounds (Merchandisers and Donation Intakers only)

Serving the community and our environment is rewarding work. We have a lot of fun! New merchandise is donated daily, so the element of surprise and wonder is constant. Get a first peek and more!
