Our Monthly Spiritual Themes guide our Chalice Circles. Chalice Circles are small, intentional groups of members and friends that gather for spiritual enrichment through personal sharing. For more information on Chalice Circles, please contact our Circle coordinator Linda Benson.
Our Chalice Circle thoughts and questions around the theme of Personalities are:
An extrovert – “I like getting my energy from active involvement in events and having a lot of different activities. I’m excited when I’m around people and I like to energize other people. I like moving into action and making things happen. I generally feel at home in the world. I often understand a problem better when I can talk out loud about it and hear what others have to say.”
An Introvert – “I like getting my energy from dealing with the ideas, pictures, memories, and reactions that are inside my head, in my inner world. I often prefer doing things alone or with one or two people I feel comfortable with. I take time to reflect so that I have a clear idea of what I’ll be doing when I decide to act. Ideas are almost solid things for me. Sometimes I like the idea of something better than the real thing.”
Which better describes you?
Think of a time when you were made comfortable by an approach that reflected the way you see yourself, or made uncomfortable by another approach. How might you stretch to reach someone who is of the other personality type?
