Krista Chapman Green in Concert - Krista Chapman Green
A native Texan, I finally found my forever home twelve years ago in the foothills of Arkansas. With that move, a huge shift started within me that there was no escaping and I am thankful for those changes every day. As a long time solitary practitioner of a nature based eclectic path, I found the healing spaces and places that fit the pieces of my soul back together like a puzzle. My two greatest loves, writing and music, began to flow together in the perpetual beauty of this place that is now home to my heart. I often picture the history of my life like a shattered mirror, and my songs are the stories of every broken shard. Every memory is one glinting piece of the whole, and like a kaleidoscope, all those broken pieces have been rearranged, creating beauty as the light shines through. My life and the lives of so many others that have touched me along the way are hidden here in the words and melodies of my songs. Stories of hope, despair, joy and love, with Those I follow and Those I am still learning so much about. Thank you for joining me on my journey, may you find comfort and laughter, strength and even tears in my songs, stories from a wandering heart...

Necessity, Possibility, Persuasion (PLI) - Rev. Paul (Chiron) Larson
All people face the existential challenges of limitation. Stuff happens, yet to cope we find possibilities, then the work of persuasion begins to bring a new possibility into manifestation. The duty of community is to care for others and the ministers help guide the community through life’s transformations. Hope springs from capacity to see the possibilities of action, the work then begins and persuasion both internally in our own motivation, and communally in our ability to support others or seek support through communication. In Greek polytheism Ananke was the personification of necessity, what happens. Tyche, the goddess of fortune, luck, and possibility, and Peitho was the personification of persuasion. I will present a perspective on pastoral care based on these archetypal deities. They serve as guideposts in a sacred calling of healing, self or others.
