Overcoming Change Immunity
Rev. Fa Jun, UUFLG Minister
Katie Rall ~ Worship Associate
Dave Coldren ~ Musician
What holds you back from the necessary changes in
your life? What holds back the people closest to you, the
organizations you work with? The country you live in?
Are there places where we have grown immune to
change? Imagine being able to find the deep blocks that
keep you immune to changing, they may not be what you

Compassionate Communication (for friends,
family, and couples) Friday, Jan. 23, 7:15 PM-9:15 PM
All of us have learned to speak, but have we learned to
speak kindly? Can we express our needs that empower
others to help us meet them? Do you wish for strategies
to effectively communicate with those who can't seem to
effectively communicate with you?
In this short, evening workshop we will explore essential
communication tools that can help a partnership, your
work-life, talking with the kids, and more. Our first 40
minutes will discuss some practical details of effective
communication strategies, and then, after a break, we'll
have time to work with specific issues that are coming
up for people in their lives. Come work out your issues
with kindness, and learn some of the most powerful
methods for creating peace with our speech.
