Rev. Ahriana can be emailed at Ahriana@Ahriana.com by anyone who wishes to share a personal message with her. She will be offering members/attendees an opportunity to meet with her, in a small group format, before she leaves, to celebrate the time that we have had together, to share memories and to say goodbye. The scheduled dates for Celebration Circles will be on the 4 Thursdays in June: June 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th. Watch the bulletin and e-blasts for more information on this.
Rev. Toni Boehm is a highly experienced Unity consultant and transition coordinator. She will be facilitating a process called “Grieving Circles” once Ahriana has departed. Rev. Toni is a trained facilitator, and the purpose of the Grieving Circles is to provide members/attendees with an opportunity to grieve the loss of our long-time minister and friend and to look forward to new beginnings. Watch the bulletin and e-blasts for more information on this.
