Rewriting Our Stories
Rev. Meg Mathieson
The stories we tell about ourselves shape who we are. Are there stories that are holding you prisoner? Today we will take a look at the stories that we tell about ourselves and look at rewriting our own stories.
Focus Collection for May
The Edna House for Women
The May Focus Collection will support the Edna House for Women which provides a recovery program for alcohol and drug abuse. Founded in 2004, the vision of The Edna House is that “every woman who desires sobriety has the opportunity to achieve it”. Their mission is “to give women an opportunity to recover from alcohol and drug addiction by providing a safe, sober place to live and to learn life skills in order to maintain 12-step based sobriety throughout their lifetime”.
Several aspects of The Edna House Program are ingrained in their mission. Women stay until they are healed. While the program starts with a 6 month stay, there is no maximum length to recovery at The Edna House. They also believe that a woman’s ability to pay should not stand in the way of her opportunity to get sober. Additionally, the program is not a one-shot chance. There is no restriction on the number of times a woman can re-enter The Edna House Program.
Focus Collection donations can be made by mailing a check to SWUU, 6320 Royalton Road, North Royalton, OH 44133 or through the Vanco GivePlus website or mobile app– iPhone app store or Google Play for Android.
