2020

in the Goodenough Community

What makes community meaningful and fun?

The richness of life in community comes in many ways – getting together informally over a meal...celebrating a significant birthday with long- time and newfound friends...working together in a creative endeavor...collaborating in a work party...thinking deeply with others about what it means to be fully alive and connected with ourselves, each other, and Spirit...and more.

In the Goodenough Community, we recognize such ways to connect as expressions of living life fully and in communities of all kinds. Throughout the year we offer programs that help you participate in your own development, learn about relating well with others, and discover your potential to have a good time in life and with others.

We welcome your interest and your participation, and hope that you will join us at any – or many! – of this year’s events.

TRUE HOLIDAYS  |  DEC 5, 2020

Our annual winter gathering offers good company, food, contra dancing, silent auction and time for reflection on the season. Offered by the Goodenough Community as an opportunity to choose a season of goodwill, peacefulness and good times with family and friends. We believe in good choices as an antidote to the rushed, commercialized, sometimes stressful aspects of the season. Be part of this fun-filled family-oriented evening and prepare yourself for the winter season (whatever faith tradition you follow) that fills your heart. Contact Elizabeth for more information.  Focal Person: Elizabeth Jarrett Jefferson: elizabeth.ann.jarrett@gmail.com
