THE GRATITUDE CHALLENGE
 Between Now & New Years’ Day

1. Keep a Gratitude Journal.  Take just a few minutes a day to write down three things you’re grateful for. You rewire your brain when we take on a daily practice like this.  When You develop the habit of writing down what You’re thankful for, You get stronger and stronger at noticing positive things! And more things to be grateful for come your way!

OR                      

2. Keep a Good Stuff Journal. Journal at the end of the day about a positive experience you had.  Taking the time to record a positive experience imprints it into your awareness. The good feelings grow and You get more adept at noticing good stuff!  You actually become happier over time as You do this.

Want some nudges for this challenge? 
* Come to the Small Group Discussion on Sun. Dec. 8 at 11:45 led by Rev. Mellen

* Subscribe for free to “Word for the Day” from Gratefulness.org
* Make a “gratitude magnet” with a quote or image that will
remind You and hang it where You’ll see it regularly.

Six weeks is about how long it takes to imprint a new habit.  So start now and by the new year, You’ll be a new You!  With your newly grateful heart, may 2020 be your best yet!

Small Group Meetings  for Friendship and Spiritual Growth
Our Small Group Meetings will be starting  again in September.  Small Groups are an opportunity for friendship and spiritual growth.  Groups of usually no more than 10 people get together to listen to each other’s ideas and share.  Each meeting has a specific topic and is led by a trained facilitator.  The groups give us a chance to get to know each other in a more unhurried way than coffee hour or a quick conversation before church. The groups have relational agreements to create an environment conducive to community building and spiritual exploration.  Those who participated last year say they thoroughly enjoyed their time together and treasure the insights gained and stories shared.

We will be meeting September through May.

 

If you have questions or wish to sign up you can contact Ellen Allman 802-463-5129 or ellenallman@gmail.com. There are two ongoing groups which meet once a month on Thursdays.  There is also a drop-in group facilitated by Rev. M’ellen usually once a month on one of the Sundays when she is in Springfield.  Come try out a group on Sunday, September 20 from noon to 1:15, after the coffee hour.  The theme of the group this time will be Connecting with Nature and it will be facilitated by Rev. M’ellen.  If there is more interest, we’ll be starting additional groups.  And Rev. M’ellen will offer a training at an area UU congregation most likely in October for those who would like to learn more or possibly become a facilitator. 

All welcome!
