June 2019

Congratulations to Jennings’ Getting Ahead graduates! Jennings’ new Getting Ahead program is a new series of brief workshops designed to help Jennings staff members discover their potential and remove barriers that might be getting in the way of their dreams. It is just one of the free benefits for staff members.

Our first graduating class at Jennings were recognized at a graduation party. They received a Getting Ahead certificate of completion and many resources and tools to take with them. The graduates highly recommend this class as they talked about the many ways it benefited them. Already they have found ways to simplify and make their lives better. The class helped them understand where they were currently at and where they wanted to go. It helped them to identify their stressors and how to overcome them. It provided them many tools to purchase a car, to get into a different apartment and to find solutions to everyday challenges. Most important is the trusting, lasting friendships they gained with their fellow students who attended the class.

Best wishes to our graduates!

Jennings turned Garfield Heights pink to celebrate our dear Sister Patricia Raelene’s last radiation treatment June 17, 2019. Our #HolySpiritStrong Sister is one good fighter Staff, friends, residents and family surprised her when they lined the street from the corner of Transportation Boulevard, down Granger Road, through the parking lot and down the hallway – wearing pink and cheering her home with pink signs. All were joyous that she was able to “ring the bell” today after her hard fought battle with cancer! Sister Patricia Raelene was very moved by the welcoming sea of smiling faces and the celebration that lasted into the afternoon. Thanks to all who have been praying for her!

Have you ever walked through the Jennings’ neighborhoods and thought you heard angels singing at a resident’s bed-side? It was probably the members of Jennings Threshold Choir, singing to a resident during a time of transition.

Spirituality and You: Abundance

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

The flow of grace through us is largely blocked when we are living inside a worldview of scarcity, a feeling that there’s just not enough: enough of God, enough of me, enough food, enough health care to go around, enough mercy to include and forgive all faults. Our unhealthy economics and politics persist because even [more…]
