It’s a question you ask or are asked dozens of times each day and yet how often do we stop, pause, reflect and answer the question in an honest and open manner? Doing so is important as the question and answer help us connect with others and to get things done. Once you have a good answer to “how are you?”, it is important to match those feelings to connect and achieve goals, to understand the meaning of these feelings and then to actively manage these feelings. These four skills are described by the theory of emotional intelligence first proposed by Jack Mayer and Peter Salovey in 1990. This interactive session will begin with a hands-on set of questions to illustrate these four hard skills and we will then apply these skills to your most challenging situations. The model itself is simple and straightforward – the challenge is to apply these skills at a high level of skill, in real time, on a consistent basis and under stressful conditions. false

      Add to Calendar 2021-09-21T19:00:00 2021-10-26T20:30:00 America/New_York The Gospel of John: An Online Bible Study with Dr. Harold Attridge The Gospel of John tells a distinctive story of Jesus. Its poetic prologue sets the stage with allusions to God's act of creation and to the revelation of the Law to Moses. The evangelist claims that the Word of God, enfleshed in Jesus, is part of the first action and offers something that the Torah could not do. It defines that gift as "birth" from God available to all who believe. The story unfolds as a series of dramatic encounters that challenge readers to reflect on their own life giving encounters with Jesus. Richly suggestive images embellish the story which delights in irony, all of which aims to train readers to "see" the truth to which Jesus witnesses. The course will explore the Gospel's narrative strategy, probe the larger theological issues that it raises, and reflect on the process of the Gospel’s development and its engagement with the intellectual and cultural context of its first century audience. The six sessions will occur on September 21, 27, October 5, 12, 19 and 26. After attending all six sessions, participants will receive a certificate of completion.

Those standards are under attack by a highly repressive, dictatorial regime in Cambodia that has eliminated free press and free speech rights, has outlawed the political opposition party, and is harshly repressing any and all forms of criticism of government policies and actions, conducting mass criminal trials and cracking down on civil society institutions. Save Cambodia and its Cambodia based human rights and democracy support groups are organizing advocacy efforts to bring international attention to the problems in the context of the 30th anniversary of the Paris Peace Accords. false
