On Saturday, March 5, from 9-11 a.m. in Goewey Hall, author and parishioner Michelle Van Loon will lead an interactive two-hour Translating Your Past workshop to help you make meaning of of your family story.

Here’s more from Michelle about the workshop:
What happened in the past doesn’t stay in the past. Our family history shapes our lives today in profound ways via genetic inheritance, generational trauma, race, ethnicity, religion, the consequences of our forebears’ choices and more. As we engage in the ongoing work of translating the past, we will find ourselves growing toward spiritual wholeness and maturity, free to love God and neighbor as we are learning to love ourselves. This lively, interactive two-hour workshop will help you begin to make meaning of the many unique threads of your family story in order to build a legacy to pass on to the next generation and beyond.

Michelle’s new book, Translating Your Past: Finding Meaning in Family Ancestry, Genetic Clues, and Generational Trauma, is available for purchase.

Tickets for the workshop are $10 and tickets for the workshop plus book are $20.
