I've cried in 6 of the last 7 Sundays at Ethos. Sometimes it's joy or appreciation or just a feeling of healing. I'm not always that lucky, whenever I'm down, I don't really feel anything. Everyone has those ups and downs and in the space of both it just feels good to be able to talk about it with others in a comfortable place.
Every month a group of us get together on a Tuesday night and we call it Share Gathering. Some folks talk, others just listen. We make new friends and share in those common experiences that no one likes to talk about. Sometimes it gets emotional, more often its just jokes and stories from real life. Folks in the room either suffer from, or love someone who suffers from Depression, Anxiety, OCD, Anorexia, Bulimia, Bipolar Disorder, Alcoholism, Addiction, or one of a dozen other sucky brain hurricanes. Some folks talk, some folks listen, some folks talk about God, some folks say swear words.
Whether you're up or down, whether you want to listen or talk, we invite you to join us at Share Gathering on Tuesday, April 18th at 6:30 at the Cannery.
