Our theme for February is Resilience.
Questions to consider about resilience for February, this month that sometimes has us feeling like it will always be winter:
Where does our own resilience come from?
How do we nurture resilience?
And how does our community create a cushion for the times when we need resilience to handle what life has dished up?
Feb 23: Finding Hope in the Midst of Adversity, A Chaplain’s Quest
In the face of pain and suffering that feel overwhelming, how do we manage to go on another day? Guest minister Rev. Nancy Pellegrini will explore resilience in the context of her work as a hospital chaplain and encourage you to think about what your own sources of hope might be.
Rev. Nancy Pellegrini received her Master of Divinity Degree from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC and was ordained as a Unitarian Universalist minister in 2013. She and her husband recently moved back to Hanover, NH from Charleston, SC. For the past six years Rev. Pellegrini served as the Chaplain at the Hollings Cancer Center at the Medical University of South Carolina and the Assistant Minister at the Unitarian Church in Charleston. She is currently doing additional chaplaincy training at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. She previously had a 20-year career as a military analyst specializing in nuclear arms control at the CIA.
