The current installment of the COEC began meeting in 2007.

We are currently on a "break," for no particular reason, and many little reasons - mostly pertaining to life circumstances. If anyone is interested in calling a meeting, feel free to post on the blog, join the google group (see link below) and send an email, or contact either Nancy (nancykj10@yahoo.com) or Jesse (schroeder.jesse@gmail.com) for more information.

This coming weekend, Sat, June 30th and Sun, July 1st, we will supporting a family in our community as they prepare for the birth of their 2nd child. We will be painting the "Choice" office space, an organization that has been a vital part of their preparations, and we need your help! Beginning at 9am Saturday morning, we will be painting. 
We welcome any help you can offer during the weekend.  You don't have to stay the whole time, but can come and go as you are available to help.  We will be there all day Saturday and Sunday until the project is finished.

The office address is 5721 N. High St, Worthington, Oh 43085

We will have everything needed, but if you have extra painting supplies, ladders, etc. please bring them.  Otherwise, all you will need is yourself.  If you have any extra friends, bring them too :).  The more help, the faster we will get this projected finished.

Email Adam, adam.f.newby@gmail.com, if you have any questions. 
Thank you all for your help! Please post if you are planning to come and when. Watch the blog for schedule changes and updated information. 


Victor Frankl Discussion

This Sunday, June 24, 2012, we will be having a discussion on Vicktor Frankl at our home, 2406 Altenburg Ct., Grove City, OH 43123 from 2pm-4pm

Viktor Frankl was a survivor of the Nazi concentration camps and went on to be a leading psychotherapist, developing existential therapy, and what he termed, "Logotherapy" - in short, Frankl believed that life, even in the midst of suffering, had profound meaning. And no matter what is taken away from us, we always have the power to choose the meaning of the events around us.

Here is a short video of Frankl presenting a lecture:

Come share in the discussion. Looking forward to seeing each of you; please post if you will be attending.
