January 27th Event: WAG Sessions, A Conversation on Race and Justice

In 2019 Miles Hall, a 23-year-old black man with mental health issues, living with his family in Walnut Creek, was murder by the police while he was in the midst of a schizophrenic episode. Miles’ mother, Taun, had done her due diligence in alerting the Walnut Creek police ahead of time of her son’s special needs. The police department had assigned a liaison officer but unfortunately she was not on duty when the family dialed 911. Miles was dead within a minute of the police’s arrival.

The Hall family has worked to turn this too familiar lethal mix of of racism, mental health needs, and law enforcement into corrective and compassionate action.

We are honored to have Miles’ mom, Taun, with us on January 27th, 2022 for an open WAG session. We will hear her and Miles’ story and learn about ways we can support this important work. Please consider joining us on zoom.Join us on

January 29th Event, New Year’s Blues. Finding Community and Compassion in our Blues: 

Congregational Care is offering a special event for all of us on Saturday morning, January 29th, from 10:00 to 11:30, on zoom. This is a gathering for those of us who are struggling to find the “happy” in Happy New Year.  Whether your blues are a sense of loss, sadness, anger, fear, worry, numbness, or some other struggle, you are welcomed—just as you are.  David Fredrickson will facilitate the group and will include a guided contemplation and reflection on the ways we can find refuge in the midst of our challenges.  Then we will co-create a space for bearing witness—leaning into our beloved community by sharing and listening to each other.  The goal is not to fix anyone but to show up with compassion and care which perhaps is the greatest gift any of us can offer to ourselves and each other.
