Mindfulness - March 15, 10:30 am, Halldorson Hall

Wendi Dumbroff, a Licensed Professional Counselor with a private practice in Madison, will share about her understanding of how becoming more aware of one’s thoughts and feelings “in the moment” can lead to better outcomes and more meaningful interactions.

Numerous scientific studies have proven that mindfulness, and intentionally focusing on the present moment, can lead to a decrease in feelings of stress.  It also allows us to “take a pause,” which can help us change un-useful patterns in our lives, rather than repeating the same old things which end up causing  problems in our relationships. 



FAITH AND FILM - RESCHEDULED FOR  Friday, March 20 at 7:30 p.m. in Halldorson Hall 

Join us for a casual evening of movie-watching and dessert, with discussion following the film.  

We will be showing Philomena, a 2013 Oscar-nominated drama starring perennial favorite Judi Dench.

The film examines loss, forgiveness and faith as an older Irish woman searches for a child she gave up to adoption 50 years ago. She is accompanied by a very secular journalist who cannot understand her loyalty and commitment to her Catholic faith. Rated PG-13.

Not able to make it, but interested in this type of gathering?  Please let Pastor Tom know of your interest.

Theos Room

Led by Rev. Halldorson

 This group meets during the school year. The class is currently studying the book of Matthew.  There is no need to be a Biblical scholar! 

PCCT BOOK CLUB led by Robin Batten.  This group will start a new book in February, “Sabbath” by Wayne Muller.  “In today's world, with its relentless emphasis on success and productivity, we have lost the necessary rhythm of life, the balance between work and rest. Constantly striving, we feel exhausted and deprived in the midst of great abundance. We long for time with friends and family, we long for a moment to ourselves.  Now, in a book that can heal our harried lives, Wayne Muller shows us how to create a special time of rest, delight, and renewal—a refuge for our souls.”

Please contact Robin Batten with any questions: and/or (973)701-8126.
