Naranon Meeting @ Angelican Church of the Epiphany
May 28 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The Nar-Anon Family Groups is primarily for those who know or have known a feeling of desperation concerning the addiction problem of someone very near to you. We have traveled that unhappy road too, and found the answer with serenity and peace of mind.

When you come into the family group, you are no longer alone, but among true friends who understand your problem as few others could. We respect your confidence and anonymity as we know you will respect ours. We hope to give you the assurance that no situation is too difficult and no unhappiness is too great to be overcome.

Our program, which is not a religious one but a spiritual way of life, is based on the Twelve Steps of Nar-Anon. We’ve found that the working of these steps will bring the solution to practically any problem. We urge you to take this program and its twelve steps seriously. It has been as helpful to us as the Narcotics Anonymous program is to the addict. We only ask for the wisdom and courage to see ourselves as we really are, to do something about ourselves with the help of a Higher Power as we understand this, and for the grace to release our addicts with love and cease trying to change them.

Keep an open mind and attend as many meetings as possible. Feel free to share during the meeting. You may ask questions after the meeting. You’ll soon make friends and will feel very much a part of the group.

With the understanding that addiction is a disease, and the realization that we are powerless over it, as well as over other people’s lives, we are ready to do something useful and constructive with our own. Then, and only then, can we be of any help to others.

Trustus Theatre Presents HIR @ Trustus Theatre
Jun 1 @ 8:00 pm

By Taylor Mac
Directed by Lindsay Rae Taylor
HIR Pronoun. (third-person singular, gender-neutral, objective case, reflexive hirself) (neologism) them (singular). Gender-neutral third-person singular object pronoun, coordinate with him and her.Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from the wars to help take care of his ailing father who’s had a stroke. Isaac has developed PTSD, and when he finds his childhood home in revolt upon his return, his challenges increase. His mother, now liberated from an oppressive marriage, is on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. Isaac’s newly out transgender sibling (and their mother’s greatest ally) is also ready to educate Isaac on all he’s missed while he’s been away in regards to gender issues. The world Isaac knew as “home” no longer exists. In Taylor Mac’s sly, subversive comedy, we begin to see that attempting to annihilate the past doesn’t always free you from it.
A Talk-Back with cast and panelists will follow the performance on June 3rd.

LOOK! Forward Photography Exhibit @ Richland Library
Jun 2 – Aug 17 all-day

The 2018 LOOK! Forward Photography Exhibit opens June 2 at the newly renovated Richland Library Main, 1431 Assembly St., in downtown Columbia.

The exhibit, which remains on display through August 17, showcases the beauty and strength of 48 children, teens and young adults who are living rich, full lives despite their disability or special healthcare need. Each individual’s story accompanies their photo, allowing others to actually see past the images and have a more realistic look into their lives.

The project is made possible thanks to the generosity of 35 South Carolina photographers – a value of more than $40,000 in services. Groucho’s Deli has supported the effort as the title sponsor, along with businesses and individuals throughout the state.

Family Connection developed the LOOK! project in response to often heard comments from the families we serve who state: “I wish that the world would really see my child and not just their disability!”

After the exhibit’s run at Richland Library’s downtown location, it will also travel to other areas of the state.

More information on the project and images from last year’s exhibit can be found online at FamilyConnectionSC.org. Questions? Contact Family Connection at (803) 252-0914 or pmozingo@FamilyConnectionSC.org.
