Horizon Community Garden Chosen for Fall Chalice Call by the Southern Region UUA

Horizon is grateful to be chosen for the Fall Chalice Lighter Call by the Southern Region of the UUA. Funds raised will help launch a new community garden. Our goal is to raise $11,500 and start planting 18 beds in February 2019. We will be mentored by the Giving Garden of Carrollton, which currently operates 32 beds rented out on a yearly basis to nearby neighbors. Our shared goal is to provide a sustainable community garden opportunity for the citizens of Carrollton and neighboring communities, without regard to demographic or socioeconomic status. Community service will be an integral goal of Horizon’s Community Garden. Gardeners will donate 50% of their garden produce to Christian Community Action (CCA) in Lewisville and to Metrocrest Services.

Transforming Painful Memories: Can It Be Done?

Lee Riley, Ministerial Intern

“The mind has the marvelous capacity to relive the emotions connected to a memory over and over again, each time you recall it. By creating a healing memory, you ensure that whenever the original memory arises in your awareness, it won't cause you as much pain as it used to.”

                                                                                         - Ronald Alexander, PhD

“Memories can be greatly distorted by strong, painful emotions from a trauma and can create unwholesome, distorted self-judgments. Returning to the original ordeal from the safety of the present, particularly with a supportive therapist or a wise and trusted friend at your side, can allow you to look again at how the events unfolded, using your logical mind to make sense of what you see with your mind's eye. When immersed in the original experience, you probably overlooked evidence that contradicted your emotional reality.”

                                                                                                     - Ronald Alexander, PhD
