Family Transitions & Transformations
A study and support group @
Old Cambridge Baptist Church, 2013-2014
All of us are in transition. When one person in a family undergoes a major change, that change affects the entire family, and indeed the entire community. Transition has a passive connotation, however, and we are encouraged to be more active during times of change, and to seek transformation.
"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect." (Romans 12:2)
Topics (order may vary): Identity and Role Change, Self-care and Family Care, Values and Priorities, Grief and loss, Dependence and independence, Dealing with money, Health: Cure vs. healing, Changing relationships: to God, to neighbors, to self
Dates: Third Wednesday of the month: Oct. 16, Nov. 20, Dec. 18, Jan. 15, Feb. 19, Mar. 19, Apr. 16, May 21
Time and Place: 6:45 p.m.-8:45 p.m., Old Cambridge Baptist Church, 1151 Mass. Ave. Cambridge, MA in the Chapel.
This group is being formed to provide that faith safety net for whatever transition you and your family are facing, so that you can be transformed, coming out of whatever change with a stronger relationship to God and in this community, more skill at navigating changes, and a deeper understanding of tools and processes of transformation. We'll incorporate bible study, theological reflection, music, prayer and other spiritual practices.
So whether you are starting college, moving, starting retirement, facing illness, being a caregiver, grieving the loss of a friend or family member, looking for a new job, getting married, getting divorced, or just living your life, join us as we all journey through changes.
