The only constant is change. If we are going to enjoy life, we get to enjoy the changes within it. When we resist any kind of change, we resist an opportunity to embrace life’s next great gift to us.

The Youth and Family department underwent a huge change recently with Debbie Sztain’s departure. And very soon we will have an opportunity to embrace a new director, Deanna Freeman. Please join me in welcoming her officially on August 1st. And repeat with me (if you like) this line from a song: "I am safe; it’s only change."

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
