July 22nd - All or Nothing Day

Join the Reverend Jeff Smith for an observance of All or Nothing Day, coming up on Thursday, July 26th! It's a day that celebrates one of the most well-known Latin phrases, "Carpe Diem," in all its glory, but is it always glorious? The Reverend will be looking at the day and the origin of the phrase, examining how the concept has been a bit hijacked in the 21st century, how it's important to appreciate ALL the moments that arrive in life, how to use "Carpe Diem" in a healthy way, and finally, he'll offer a bit of insight on how he manages that "seize the day" impulse, but for himself and his wife!

June 24th, 2018 - Let It Go Day

This week, the Reverend Jeff Smith notes an opportunity too few of us take advantage of! "Let It Go Day" is a reminder that holding on to grudges or hostility from the past is likely only hurting you! He'll delve into the history of the day, find out what incidents and decisions create the strongest sense of regret, why there's no point in worrying about regretting things, what produces the most profound regret, and how he personally deals with (or fails to deal with) his own regrets!

June 17th, 2018 - American Eagle Day / Father's Day

Join the Reverend Jeff Smith for a split-ticket program as he celebrates two holidays at once (one well-known and one lesser-so)! For starters, it's American Eagle Day, coming up on June 20th, so the first half of the program will focus on why we have such a day as well as the history of the bald eagle as the symbol of American democracy. Then it's on to June 17th which is (of course) Father's Day! The Rev has some ideas on how to truly honor your father on his day, and then some suggestions on how to do the same if your father's no longer around. Finally, he'll speak about how his memories of his father seem to dictate a clear course of action in dealing with a currently upsetting topic!
