New Direction

By September 4, 2022 No Comments

After a music set led by Peter and Zoe Fitch, with help from various musicians, Walter Thiessen and Jessica Williams laid out the plans for how St. Croix Church will move forward after Peter and Mary Ellen retire next month. Then Peter gave a short talk about recent discoveries in trauma theory and the ways that we find to move from a state of “freezing” or paralysis to “fight or flight” and, finally, to “social and rest”, a happier state by far. Then he compared this to coping mechanisms in religious language like “praising the Lord” that may actually serve a similar purpose. After this talk, the band closed the time with one more song.
