Programs Offered by Dr. Jim Cahill and Rev. Dr. Mellen Kennedy

Sunday, January 19th

Are You looking for some encouragement in getting a handle on your own wellness or fulfilling your New Year’s Resolution?  Come hear Dr. Jim Cahill and Rev. Dr. Mellen Kennedy and join in on the conversation on Sunday, January 19.  When Jim and Mellen met last year, they realized they have a lot in common including their passion about wellness and desire to help others find their way home to more vibrant living.   Jim Cahill served for decades as a pediatrician in Springfield.  In his own journey toward wellness, he lost over a hundred pounds!  Mellen who is an interfaith minister, has had her own health challenges some years ago.  Both of them now feel healthier and happier than they’ve ever felt, Jim in his 70’s and Mellen in her 60’s.  They are really pleased to share from their own questions and struggles and the transformations they have experienced.  In their conversation, they’ll explore the spiritual dimensions and the shift of consciousness that healing often entails.

Jim and Mellen will speak at 10 AM on “Health Is the First Wealth.”  Then after a break for conversation over a soup lunch, they will lead a book discussion at noon on “Younger Next Year: Live Strong, Fit and Sexy – Until You’re 80 and Beyond” by Chris Crowley and Henry S. Lodge, MD.  You’re welcome to join us for all or part of these events, all held at the Springfield UU Meetinghouse, 21 Fairground Road, just up from the Riverside School.  This promises to be a morning  full of great stories, helpful info, inspiring ideas, and engaging conversation.  We hope You’ll join us.  Free and no registration necessary.

The Coffee House Scheduled for January 18th has been CANCELLED due to predicted bad weather.  Jay Doucette’s performance has been rescheduled for Saturday, February 15th at 7 pm.
