Solomon said at the dedication of the temple, “Will God indeed dwell on the earth?” 1 Kings 8:27

No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son, who is close to the Father’s heart, who has made him known. John 1:18

Blessed Keeper of our hearts and souls, send us among the needy spreading your love and joy. Use us, employ us, stand by us, gift us, move us, send us in your service, until the day you call us home to rest eternally with you. Amen.

Recent Programs and Meeting Held

July 19 Pres. John reminded us that next week’s meeting is at 8AM at the Easton City Market. Earlier today we held a board meeting and approved $1000 for the Salvation Army “getting ready for school backpacks” program for about 200 children. We also approved $500 for the Easton Schools “summer sizzle program” held in conjunction with ProJeCt to help offset about 200 students annual “summer slide” in reading and comprehension. And we approved $2000 towards the remainder of our 5-year Kiwanis International's Children’s Fun pledge for the EliMiNaTe project. Joanne reported that all but $10 has been collected on our Super Raffle which netted us over $8200 for our Service Project Fund. Vic was able to muster up one of his “groaner” jokes: it was funny. Today Dean brought us, in absentia, Denise Veres, the founder and Executive Director of Shanthi Project who’s mission is “Through therapeutic yoga, Shanthi Project helps at-risk youth and trauma survivors establish healthy and productive relationships with themselves, their families and their communities.” Denise chose the name “Shanthi” as it is Sanskrit for "peace." This program began in 2010 and through the use of neuro-physiological benefits of trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness practices they help not only school students but also adult and prison inmates to regain control of their lives. At the school level they teach students how to use mindfulness which is “brain based” techniques such as breathing exercises to regain control and improve their self-control their self-awareness and well-being. The cost to the school district is about $20/child for an 8-week program which the teacher can then continue utilizing once the children have had the experience. The children learn about the basic parts of the brain and the effect on their lives the brain has. They have helped many other organizations in the area: Easton Boys & Girls Club, 3rd St Alliance, Safe Harbor, Northampton County Children & Youth. http://www.shanthiproject.org
