Heidi Shott and “The Power of the Well-Considered Yes”
On Saturday, April 1, women from the midcoast region are invited to St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church at 95 Court Street in Belfast to learn how saying “yes” to opportunities to serve can transform one person’s life. We’ll gather with Heidi Shott, Canon for Communications and Advocacy at the Episcopal Diocese of Maine, as she shares her journey of staying open to possibilities to become involved, sometimes messily, in the lives of others. The program begins with refreshments at 9:30 a.m.
In addition to her advocacy work with the Episcopal Diocese, Shott serves a mentor for youth offenders with the Restorative Justice Project of the Midcoast and as the legal guardian of a teenage minor asylum seeker from East Africa.
“Those times when I’ve opened my life to possibilities outside my comfort zone have led to fascinating and rewarding opportunities and rich relationships,” said Shott, who will also share a multimedia presentation of recent trips to Jordan, Palestine, Israel, and Turkey and the surprises she found there.
Seating is limited so please call to save a place: Susan Mayer, St. Margaret’s Outreach Coordinator at 338-6436, the church office at 338-2412, Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to noon. Plenty of on-street parking as well as behind the Parish Hall.
