Adventist Forum presents Dr. Berecz

Angel Bones in Unexpected Places

presented by

John Berecz, Ph.D.
Clinical Psychologist,
Buchanan, MI

Sabbath Afternoon at 3:30 pm
January 25, 2014

Chan Shun Hall
Andrews University
Berrien Springs, MI
 

 


Dr. Berecz is a clinical psychologist with forty years experience as a therapist, university professor, and author. His Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology is from Indiana University, Bloomington. His internship was at Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Boston; a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital. For 37 years he taught psychology at Andrews University, retiring in 2008.His 2009  textbook  Theories of Personality is now being used in college classrooms across the country. In addition he has published a half dozen other books.

He is the father of three grown sons (a veterinarian, a judge, and a school psychologist) and is married to Deborah Berecz, a Collaborative lawyer.

Dr. Berecz has provided the following overview of his presentation:

Angel Bones in Unexpected Places
In a recent interview with Time magazine, J K Rowling described story as “making meaning out of chaos.” Angel Bones is story—my story—about finding meaning in chaos. It’s more about “being found” than finding. It’s about how Sara (my moniker for Spirit) found me and infused my personal chaos with meaning. Angel Bones is also about how forgiveness saved my life and rehabilitated my self esteem.

In sum: three themes co-mingle in this personal narrative: Spirit, forgiveness, and self-esteem.   
 

La Leche League Updates

March 11
April 8
May 13

If there are runny noses, coughs, fever, etc, please do not bring it with you.  Especially now, with the flu in full force.  We want to make this a healthy and safe environment for everyone.

Nedley Depression Recovery Seminar

Nedley Depression Recovery Seminar

Nedley Depression Recovery Seminar
Tuesday evenings, January 21 - March 11
Information Session January 12 at 3 pm
Village Church Fireside Room


Wait! Don’t be fooled by the name! Benefits of the seminar include:
Keeping Your Happy Switch Turned On
Improving Your IQ and EQ (emotional quotient)
Recovering from Depression and Anxiety.
The brain is the most complex organ in the body, so it stands to reason that there are many contributors to maintaining mental health and to the development of mental health problems.
“Learn how to:
* Understand nutritional secrets to improve mood
* Recognize and correct distorted thoughts
* Manage stress
* Overcome addictions
* Deal with loss
* Treat depression through lifestyle changes
* Improve spiritual health
Dr. Nedley has researched the epidemic of depression sweeping society. He has discovered that one in three patients seeking medical help is plagued by depression. Through his ongoing study of the current scientific research related to diseases of the mind, combined with years of clinical experience, Dr. Nedley committed himself to finding the root causes of depression rather than just anesthetizing the symptoms with medicine. Dr. Neil Nedley is a full time physician who practices acute internal care medicine. . . He is an experienced national and international speaker.”
Plan to attend a free information session Sunday, January 12, at 3 pm in the Village Church Fireside Room. 


Updated prices:
Single new participant - $140 (materials + pre & post test)
New participant couple - $155 (1 set of materials & 2 pre/post tests)
Seminar alumnus - $20


Please RSVP as soon as possible. We're already beyond the date that we need to order materials in time to get them by the start of the seminar, but we can place another order for anyone signing up between now and the start of the seminar (the materials will arrive later than the start date of the seminar). RSVP to 471 - 7795.

Bobby & Michelle- New nest fund

During the early morning hours on January 5, 2014 Bobby and Michelle Murray, both recent alumni of Andrews University, lost their home and car in a fire that engulfed everything that they own. Thankfully, they were not in their home at the time and Molly (their dog) was safely with them too. Unfortunately, they did not yet have insurance on their home and car and could really use our help to get back on their feet. 

If you can donate anything at all, please do.  Even $5 would help.

Jan. Meeting of Berrien Springs Camera Club

The Berrien Springs Camera Club will meet on Tues., Jan. 7, at 7 p.m. in the Berrien Springs Community Library at Cass and Union. Notice the change from its usual first Wednesday of the month, due to the holiday on Jan. 1 and the library not being available on the following Wednesday.

            The program will be presented by Rob Shellhamer, the treasurer of the club. His topic will be Flash Photography. He says, “I will be covering both built-in and camera flash, but not strobe lights (though many of the same principles would apply).” He adds, “There will be a short bit on theory and technique, but mostly just playing with the camera and flash. Participants should feel free to bring theirs and play along or just sit and enjoy.”

Shellhamer, an avid photographer, has been a member of the Berrien Springs Camera Club for six years. He enjoys a wide variety of kinds of photography and enjoys collecting gear for it.  He not only is a skilled photographer, but also has the ability to explain techniques in a step-by-step manner.

            All are welcome. Refreshments will be served.

Spanish Week of Prayer

Saturdays at 11:30 a.m. and weekdays at 7 p.m. at the Spanish Seventh-day Adventist Church. See attached for details.

Veterans Day Event in Buchanan

This year's Veterans Day program sponsored by the Buchanan American Legion features a look at another aspect of World War II history. While American servicemen and women were fighting overseas, this area was playing host to hundreds of German prisoners of war.

Retired Western Michigan University professor Howard Poole will speak three times in Buchanan as part of this year's Veterans Day activities. Poole will speak at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 at the Buchanan American Legion, at 7 p.m. that night at Buchanan High School and the next morning at 9 a.m. to students at BHS.

Poole is a Sister Lakes resident and retired from Western Michigan in 2004. Since then, he has researched a variety of topics including the history of the Sister Lakes area and what happened when German POWs were brought into Southwest Michigan to work on area farms during World War II.

Poole's research has uncovered how area farms used German prisoners of war for farm labor during the war and what life was like for the half million German POWs shipped to the United States during that time period. He has also found information about a Japanese American internment camp in Southwest Michigan.

Past Veterans Day programs have given people the chance to hear about other aspects of World War II history with speakers coming in to talk on topics ranging from the role of women in the war and the service of African Americans and Native Americans. The legion has also brought in survivors of major battles and massacres to speak on Veterans Day.

Adventist Retirees of Michiana Meeting

Dave Pagel, our Michigan District 78 Representative, will be speaking at the next Adventist Retiree of Michiana meeting and potluck November 10 at 1 pm  at the
Village Church Family Center. He will be sharing issues facing the state of Michigan.
Everyone of retirement age is welcome to attend and come for an enriched life.
