The Saturday Service November 7, 2020
1:35 – 3:04 – announcements – thanks, Toni Anne!, week off, feeling refreshed, Favorite thing she said “Subtle idea of connecting , watching the British bake off with the desire to stay healthy, what are you influencing in your mind (always in the process of becoming)”
3:05– 5:16 – last week review, alive? Have you learned something in the past week? Poll attendees. Hope! A few different shades of patience (Betsy Ann), could just be still in the middle of chaos (Marcus)
5:17 – 9:11 – answer we receive is a factor in our becoming. Eg: How are you? Response depends on environment. What happens if we answer the question differently than what we expect? When we hear someone say “How are you”, sometimes we reach for how we have been wronged. If you could choose the category to respond, how would you answer it? Depends on who is asking?
10:52 – 13:30 – Quoteth Rabbi Brian: Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the right action arrives by itself. How patient do you find yourself today vs this week (pick a number for each)? What is your patience level at this moment (number) vs. What it was last week (#)?
14:16 – 18:24 – Quoteth Rabbi Brian (a few quotes): how can I have the first 6 week lessons planned (to student interns advisor) if I haven’t met the students? Need to know who is showing up in class. Need to make assessment as to what students know. Same as prepping for services, notes are there, but not sure how long each note will take. You can prep as much as possible, but it may not work out that way. Why?
36:21 – 44:04 – We think that certainty will give us ballast, however, would you think that thinking would give you ballast? Review comments in the breakout rooms: Being Present Results Practice Coming to Saturday Service Gathering in a group – connections to others Boundaries LOVE is a buoy (nautical reference)
44:05 – 48:58– ETSY item de semaine and discussion: Meditation Maaaagic book quote: It’s as easy as JFST plus guesses (in book page). How can we stay fully present in the moment even while being emotional and admitting it?
48:59 – 51:19 – notes from James: Nagy quote: One “lit” candle can light a thousand other candles. Promo for James’ book: Write our Wrongs. Link to book in newsletter (https://www.amazon.com/Write-Our-Wron…) .
