On Father’s Day, the First United Methodist Church men’s choir sang of “walking a mile in my neighbors’ shoes,” and it stirred the souls of people around me in the pews as well as my own heart. That’s what Thrive! is about — walking alongside people who live each day with stress. Have you ever experienced:
Walk a mile in these shoes. Not everyone is prepared to feel the anxiety and anger that can come from walking with our Thrive! leaders, but I encourage you to try. You won't be alone if you do. Sturdy souls, caring hearts, and community is what it takes.
—Elaine Johannes, co-president of the Thrive! Board of Directors
Thrive! took a large group to Uncorked Inspiration on May 29. Here's what our coach, Tanya Baruth, said about the evening:
"What a turnout we had Tuesday night for painting at Uncorked Inspiration! As always, our Thrive! participants impress me. While I was attempting to get my creative juices flowing, I was listening to some of the Leaders around me. I heard such statements as, 'This is so relaxing' and 'I am so glad I came tonight.' I could also hear laughter and pleasant conversations."
Thank you to Neal and Andrea Wallenberg for allowing Thrive! to paint at a discount, and to donors who support such excellent activities for our Leaders.
