Brené Brown: The Call to Courage!

“True belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.

Native American Worship Service

On October 11 we had our 2nd monthly Native American Worship "Spirituality" with Carolyn Gouge. She was a great storyteller and did a very nice job explaining Anishinaabe traditions.

This month we will welcome Jim Pete on November 22 who will be teaching about "Thanksgiving: Every day in the Life of the Anishinaabe (Ojibwe, Chippewa)"
Bayfield Presbyterian Church will be streaming the Community Thanksgiving Eve worship service on Wednesday, November 25 at 7 p.m. It will be streaming live on the Bayfield Presbyterian Church Facebook page. Tom Denker will be playing piano and area clergy will be leading the service.
Mother Tanya Scheff of Christ Church, the Episcopal Church of Chequamegon Bay will be preaching.

This is not an in person, public service of worship. It will only be accessible online. The only people who will be in the sanctuary will be Tom Denker, Steve Sandstrom (AV), and area clergy.

Thank You Sharon!!!
Sharon Bestul cleaned and weeded the bookshelves in the fellowship hall at Immanuel. If you would like any of the books Sharon weeded out please feel free to go through the books on the table within the next two weeks. After that they will magically disappear.
