RECLAIMING THE PUBLIC FORUM:
Fostering Family Conversations on Difficult Topics

Wednesday, January 30

7 pm

76 Bell St., Fellowship Hall

Federated Church invites you to a discussion exploring how to approach difficult topics with children.  The news seems to be dominated by disturbing events such as school shootings, family separations at the border and catastrophic weather events.  It can be difficult to have an honest conversation with our children, when we don’t completely understand ourselves. Please join us as we explore age-appropriate ways to broach these subjects, address anxiety, reconcile the role of faith in these events and help kids find their own way to make a tangible difference.   

 

Speakers: Dr. Tira Krug and Rev Mark Simone

 

Childcare for school age children will be available. Please RSVP for childcare reservations to Kiersti Critchfield - kcritchfield@fedchurch.org.

 

Rev Mark Simone, Pastor of Children's, Youth, and Family Faith Formation, holds a Master’s Degree in Pastoral Psychology and Counseling from Ashland Seminary. He has been active in youth and family counseling for 25 years both at Federated and in the community.
