Next Meeting, June 9, of volunteers, (change from June 2)

NEXT MEETING of SG volunteers, jail ministry, June 9, Paschal's place

TO: Lymans, Turner and Barbara, Joanna Cox, Guido Caspani, Gerard Howell, Nick Z, Steve Stone, Mike Kavanaugh, Mary Kane, Eva Hicks, Moe Mercier, and guests.

We are scheduling our quarterly update of our Detention Center Spiritual Growth ministry work for the second Saturday in March, Saturday, June 9, BYOL,, 10:30 to 2, but coffee and donuts at 10. RSVP requested.

Place: Paschal's conference room, Winchester Road.

A) We have a videography professional who wants to make a documentary of our work., self-financed. I assume that you are willing to be videotaped so that others, and hopefully, many others, might learn about what we - all of us - are doing and accomplishing in this interfaith and interdiscipinary rehabillitation program.
So come washed behind your ears, but casual professional dress (clean jeans, etc.) You may go to their web site: Blue Moon Multimedia to review their work. The videotaping will be done here.

B) An international business assessment company, Target Training International, Inc. through my 14 years of association with them and use of their instruments and creative feedback given, are going to supply the career profiling reports free for our inmates. This will be a huge step in their self-wareness program. I am working to get that done free also for all our volunteers. I will use about an hour on this training date to introduce you to the oldest way of understanding personality in history and some modern applications.

C) Each person will report on their ministries. Paschal will give an overview of the DISC view of personality differences and provide reports for those present. Moe Mercier will give an overview of changes in his Transition program and Life Possibilities.

Some really good things are happening although Mo Mercier is facing some changes in support for this Life Possibilities program. Basically we are looking for a home other than OWL for the transition program.

Be well. Spring has sprung. The songbirds start here about 6:02 a.m. and welcome the very first light of day gloriously. I did get to visit and walk the Labyrinth in the Lyman's backyard, which was a cool experience. Janette and I have decided to build one here this summer in memory of my friend John A McGill where we used to walk and talk together in the woods. Some of you might be interested in this oldest of spiritual exercise in history, found in all the ancient cultures, dating to some 3,000 B.C. I am told.
