Edisi Hari Minggu, 8 Januari 2023 - Damai dan Pengampunan

Kencan Dengan Tuhan

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Minggu, 8 Januari 2023 Bacaan: "Saudara-saudara, aku sendiri tidak menganggap, bahwa aku telah menangkapnya, tetapi ini yang kulakukan: aku melupakan apa yang telah di belakangku dan mengarahkan diri kepada apa yang di hadapanku, dan berlari-lari kepada tujuan untuk memperoleh hadiah, yaitu panggilan sorgawi dari Allah dalam Kristus Yesus." (Filipi 3:13-14) Renungan: Seringkali tanpa kita sadari banyak di antara kita yang hidup di luar tembok penjara, kita bebas secara fisik namun terpenjara dalam hati dan pikiran kita. Ada tembok kegagalan yang terus mengurung kita. Ada tembok sakit hati yang menghalangi kita untuk menikmati indahnya hidup dalam damai sejahtera. Ada tembok masa lalu yang buruk yang terus mengintimidasi kita untuk tidak melakukan apa-apa dalam hidup ini. Ada tembok kepedihan dan penderitaan yang tidak mengizinkan kita untuk mencoba mengambil kesempatan baru dan melakukan sesuatu bagi masa depan kita. Jangan biarkan penjara-penjara itu mengurung kita. Kita bisa keluar dari sana sebab sekalipun tembok itu tinggi tetapi ada pintu di sana dan kita telah memegang kunci pintu itu. Bukalah pintu itu dengan berkata, "Aku mau mengampuni, aku mau melupakan apa yang di belakang, aku mau berharap pada Tuhan sebab masa depanku indah di tangan-Nya, aku mau mencoba memulai sesuatu yang baru dan aku mau keluar dari penjara ini." Hanya kita yang bisa melakukannya. Kita memang bukan orang yang sempurna. Kita merasakan sakit ketika ada orang yang menyakiti kita. Kita merasakan takut ketika masalah yang kita hadapi belum juga selesai. Kita merasakan khawatir dan hampir hilang harapan ketika kita mengalami kegagalan. Kita merasa minder dan takut ketika kita ingat kembali masa lalu kita yang buruk. Dengan diri kita yang seperti ini, siapakah orang yang mau menerima kita? Pemikiran itu menjadi benar, jika orang yang menilai kita itu adalah manusia. Tapi lihatlah, Dia sanggup mengubah Rasul Paulus, si manusia yang paling kejam, keras, penganiaya dan pembunuh itu menjadi orang yang penuh cinta Tuhan dan hidup untuk Injil. Jika rasul Paulus saja sanggup Allah ubah, apalagi diri kita. Ia memberi jalan keluar untuk persoalan kita. Tidak ada yang mustahil bagi Allah. Bagaimana caranya? Lupakan semua yang ada di belakang kita, kegagalan, masa lalu, ampuni orang-orang yang sudah menyakiti kita, arahkan diri kita dan berlarilah kepada apa yang dihadapan kita, maka Allah akan mengubah hidup kita. Itulah yang dilakukan oleh Rasul Paulus. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, penuhilah aku dengan kuasa Roh Kudus-Mu, agar aku dapat keluar dari penjara masa lalu yang selama ini mengikatku, yaitu dendam, kemarahan, kekecewaan dan kegagalan. Bebaskan aku dari semua itu agar aku dapat menjadi pribadi yang merdeka, untuk memulai hidup baru bersama dengan kasih-Mu. Amin. (Dod).

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Jumat, 6 Januari 2023 Bacaan: "Lihatlah, yang kuanggap baik dan tepat ialah, kalau orang makan minum dan bersenang-senang dalam segala usaha yang dilakukan dengan jerih payah di bawah matahari selama hidup yang pendek, yang dikaruniakan Allah kepadanya, sebab itulah bahagiannya." (Pengkhotbah 5:17) Renungan: Ada seorang pengusaha kaya raya yang super sibuk baru saja membeli sebidang tanah seluas ratusan hektar di tepi sebuah pantai. Ia pun pergi untuk meninjau lokasi tersebut. Tiba-tiba langkahnya itu dihentikan oleh suara seorang pria. "Selamat pagi kawan," ujar pria yang sedang duduk bersantai sambil menikmati panasnya sinar matahari. Si pengusaha menoleh, "Selamat pagi. Hei, kenapa kamu di situ saja? Apakah kamu tidak punya pekerjaan?" tanya si pengusaha. "Aku nelayan," jawab orang itu. Perbincangan pun berlanjut. "Kalau begitu pergilah ke laut dan tangkaplah banyak ikan," kata si pengusaha. "Oh, aku sudah ke laut tadi pagi. Sekarang aku sedang menikmati hidupku sambil melepas lelah," jawab si nelayan. "Sekarang kembali lagi ke laut," kata si pengusaha dengan nada agak tegas. "Tapi untuk apa?" tanya si nelayan. "Tangkap lagi ikan sebanyak-banyaknya," jawab si pengusaha. Sejenak nelayan nelayan diam, kemudian ia berkata, "Teruuus..." "Ya, kemudian kamu jual ikan itu supaya uangmu bertambah banyak sehingga kamu menjadi kaya," kata si pengusaha. "Kemudian apa yang harus aku lakukan?" tanya nelayan lagi. "Kamu tinggal menikmati hidupmu," kata si pengusaha. Dengan wajah polos dan sambil tersenyum si nelayan berkata, "Loh, bukankah sekarang ini aku juga sedang menikmati hidupku?" Si pengusaha terdiam dan berlalu sementara nelayan terus menikmati sinar matahari dan angin pantai yang berhembus sepoi-sepoi. Ia benar-benar menikmati hidupnya. Bukankah akibat terlalu bernafsu dalam mengejar kekayaan ataupun kesuksesan, kita terkadang justru lupa menikmati kehidupan itu sendiri? Seringkali pikiran dan waktu kita hanya terfokus pada uang, jabatan kekuasaan ataupun kesuksesan yang sedang kita raih, sehingga kita justru tidak ada waktu untuk menikmati saat demi saat yang berlalu dalam kehidupan kita. Jadi, mari terus berusaha meraih kesuksesan kita, namun jangan pernah lupa untuk meluangkan waktu menikmati kehidupan kita. Karena kehidupan ini tidak akan pernah dapat diputar kembali. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, berilah kau hikmat-Mu, agar dapat menggunakan waktuku dengan baik, sehingga aku bisa menikmati hidupku di tengah-tengah kesibukanku. Amin. (Dod).

Kencan Dengan Tuhan

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Selasa, 3 Januari 2023 Bacaan: Beginilah firman TUHAN, Penebusmu, Yang Mahakudus, Allah Israel: "Akulah TUHAN, Allahmu, yang mengajar engkau tentang apa yang memberi faedah, yang menuntun engkau di jalan yang harus kautempuh." (Yesaya 48:17) Renungan: Ada seorang wanita yang konseling dengan seorang pembimbing rohaninya. Ia bercerita bahwa ia berasal dari lingkungan yang sangat negatif. Orang-orang yang membesarkan dia terus-menerus membuat dia merasa direndahkan. Ia merasa tidak bisa menjaga hubungan yang baik dan tidak pernah bisa mempertahankan hal-hal yang baik dalam hidupnya. Ia merasa bahwa ia telah berjalan dari satu kekecewaan kekecewaan yang lain. Ia berpikir orang-orang di sekitarnya justru mengatakan hal-hal yang telah mengutuk masa depannya. Ketika mendengar itu, pembimbing rohaninya langsung berkata kepadanya, "Sebelum ada yang bisa mengutuk anda, Tuhan Yesus Kristus telah menaruh berkat pada anda. Tidak peduli apa yang mereka katakan tentang anda. Tidak peduli bagaimana mereka mencoba untuk membuat anda merasa buruk. Berkat Tuhan Yesus Kristus selalu mengalahkan kutukan. Daripada mendukung masa lalu dengan kata-kata anda, kenapa tidak mendukung iman anda dengan kata-kata anda dan mulai mengatakan apa yang Tuhan Yesus Kristus katakan kepada Anda." Kemudian pembimbing rohaninya meminta wanita itu untuk mulai berkata, "Saya seorang anak dari Allah yang Maha Tinggi. Saya diberkati dan saya tidak bisa dikutuk. Saya menggunakan mahkota perkenanan-Nya. Saya sudah dilengkapi dengan segala sesuatu yang saya butuhkan untuk berhasil." Ketika kita memperkatakan apa yang Tuhan katakan tentang diri kita, maka pikiran beracun tidak dapat berakar dalam diri kita. Firman Tuhan memberikan pagar perlindungan di sekitar hati dan pikiran kita. Ingatlah bahwa diri kita tidak ditentukan oleh apa yang dikatakan orang lain tentang kita, melainkan ditentukan oleh apa yang Tuhan katakan tentang kita. Orang mungkin berkata, "Kamu tidak pernah sukses," tetapi Tuhan berkata, "Segala sesuatu yang kamu pegang dengan tanganmu akan berhasil. Orang mungkin berkata, "Kamu tidak akan pernah sembuh," tetapi Tuhan berkata, "Aku memulihkan kesehatanmu." Orang mungkin berkata, "Situasi anda tampaknya mustahil," tetapi Tuhan berkata, "Bersama Aku, segala sesuatu mungkin!" Hari ini terimalah apa yang Tuhan katakan tentang diri kita. Renungkan kebenaran-Nya yang memerdekakan. Jangan biarkan pikiran negatif dan beracun mengambil akar dalam hati kita. Sebaliknya nyatakanlah janji Tuhan atas hidup kita. Ingat, perkataan dan pikiran negatif dapat selalu kita kalahkan dengan menyatakan apa yang Tuhan katakan tentang diri kita yaitu bahwa Dia sangat mengasihi kita. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, tambahkanlah imanku, agar aku dapat memperkatakan firman-Mu dengan penuh kuasa, sehingga hal-hal yang baik terjadi atas diriku. Amin. (Dod).

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Senin, 2 Januari 2023 Bacaan: "Ia membuat segala sesuatu indah pada waktunya, bahkan Ia memberikan kekekalan dalam hati mereka. Tetapi manusia tidak dapat menyelami pekerjaan yang dilakukan Allah dari awal sampai akhir." (Pengkhotbah 3:11) Renungan: Ikan bandeng memiliki daging yang lezat, namun sayangnya memiliki tulang dan duri yang susah dipisahkan dari dagingnya. Salah satu cara mengatasi masalah ini adalah dengan mengolah bandeng menjadi bandeng presto. Bandang diolah dengan pressure cooker yaitu alat masak yang bekerja dengan memberikan tekanan tinggi. Tekanan itu telah diatur sedemikian rupa sehingga tulang dan duri bandeng tersebut bisa menjadi lunak tapi dagingnya sendiri tidak rusak. Kita pun dapat menikmati daging bandeng yang lezat tanpa harus terganggu dengan tulang dan durinya lagi. Hampir sama dengan ikan bandeng, ada juga banyak tulang dan duri dalam diri kita yang membuat hidup kita tidak menyenangkan bagi Tuhan. Mungkin tulang dan duri itu berupa kesombongan, ketidakpercayaan, kekerasan hati, iri hati, dengki, pola pikir yang salah dan sebagainya. Maka seringkali Tuhan harus mengatasinya dengan memasukkan kita untuk sementara waktu ke dalam pressure cooker yakni situasi hidup yang sering kita anggap begitu menekan kita sehingga membuat kita stres dan depresi. Tapi percayalah, setiap tekanan yang diizinkan Tuhan terjadi dalam kehidupan ini tentu dengan takaran tekanan yang sudah Dia atur, sehingga tidak akan melebihi kemampuan kita untuk menanggungnya. Cukup kuat untuk melunakkan berbagai macam tulang dan duri yang ada di dalam diri kita atau membentuk karakter kita tetapi tidak akan pernah sampai membuat kita hancur. Apabila saat ini kita sedang berada dalam situasi yang tertekan sehingga membuat kita stress, jangan menyerah. Tetaplah beriman kepada-Nya. Pakailah kesempatan ini untuk merenung dan mencari apa yang Tuhan inginkan agar kita ubah dalam diri kita. Lalu jalani dengan kesabaran dan ketekunan agar melalui proses ini kita menjadi pribadi yang lebih baik dan berkenan kepada-Nya serta menyenangkan hati-Nya. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, terima kasih untuk setiap permasalahan yang Kau izinkan terjadi dalam hidupku. Aku percaya melalui itu semua Engkau sedang membentuk aku menjadi pribadi yang tangguh dalam segala hal. Amin. (Dod).

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Minggu, 1 Januari 2023 Bacaan: Aku menyangka dalam kebingunganku: "Aku telah terbuang dari hadapan mata-Mu." Tetapi sesungguhnya Engkau mendengarkan suara permohonanku, ketika aku berteriak kepada-Mu minta tolong." (Mazmur 31:23) Renungan: Suatu ketika ada seorang wanita yang selalu berdoa agar suaminya bisa datang ke gereja bersamanya. Dia bertekad dan bersemangat bahwa apa yang dilakukannya pasti bisa membawa suaminya kembali ke gereja. Wanita ini meletakkan ayat firman Tuhan di seluruh rumahnya. Ia pun selalu meninggalkan Alkitabnya terbuka dengan berharap suaminya bisa tertarik untuk membacanya. Wanita ini juga selalu mendorong suaminya untuk datang ke gereja bersamanya. Namun semua usaha yang dilakukannya itu nampak sia-sia, karena suaminya tetap tidak mau pergi ke gereja. Setelah setahun lebih ia mulai frustasi dan putus asa. Ia kehilangan damai sejahtera dan sukacitanya. Dia tidak lagi memiliki semangat seperti dulu. Akhirnya dengan putus asa dan kecewa dia pergi kepada pembimbing rohaninya dan berkata, "Saya tidak tahu lagi apa yang bisa saya lakukan." Pembimbing rohaninya pun menasihati, "Hal terbaik yang bisa anda lakukan adalah melepaskan seluruh masalah anda dan menyerahkannya kepada Tuhan. Anda sudah melakukan semua yang dapat anda lakukan. Anda telah berdoa dan anda sudah percaya. Sekarang letakkan semuanya di dalam tangan Tuhan dan katakan pada Tuhan, 'Tuhan, jika dia tidak pernah akan datang ke gereja sekalipun, saya masih akan bahagia. Tuhan, jika dia tidak pernah berubah, saya masih akan memercayai Engkau sepenuhnya.'" Itulah yang wanita ini lakukan. Dia menyerahkannya pada Tuhan dan pada akhirnya dia menjadi orang yang berbeda. Dari minggu ke minggu selalu tampak senyum lebar di wajahnya. Dia tidak lagi marah atau frustasi. Dia menikmati hidupnya dan memercayai Allah. Lalu dua tahun kemudian, pada suatu hari Minggu, tiba-tiba suaminya berkata, "Aku ingin pergi ke gereja dengan kamu hari ini." Wanita itu hampir pingsan. Ini benar-benar ajakan dari suaminya sendiri. Sejak saat itu suaminya selalu ikut ke gereja bersamanya. Mungkin saat ini kita memiliki beberapa hal yang perlu kita serahkan kepada Tuhan. Apakah ada orang-orang yang membuat kita frustasi karena mereka tidak berubah? Apakah ada keadaan atau situasi sulit yang belum juga berubah sesuai dengan harapan dan keinginan kita? Jangan lagi gelisah. Kalau di tahun yang lalu harapan sudah tidak ada lagi, maka percayalah di tahun yang baru ini ada harapan baru yang akan mendatangkan berkat bagi kehidupan kita. Mari katakan kepada Tuhan, "Tuhan Yesus Kristus, saya sudah melakukan semua yang bisa saya lakukan. Saya tidak akan menjalani hidup saya dengan marah lagi. Saya tahu hanya Engkau Tuhan Yesus Kristus yang dapat mengubah orang dan mengubah keadaan. Oleh karena itu saya akan melakukan yang terbaik dan mengizinkan Engkau yang berdaulat untuk mengerjakan yang terbaik bagiku." Selamat Tahun Baru. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, terima kasih untuk penyertaan-Mu di tahun lalu. Ada banyak harapan-harapanku yang belum Kau izinkan terjadi atas diriku. Kini di tahun yang baru ini, aku tetap memercayai Engkau, walau apa yang menjadi harapan dan keinginanku belum tercapai. Sebab aku percaya, yang terbaik pasti Kau berikan untukku. Amin. (Dod).

(Amsal 14:21) Renungan: Anna hari ini sedang merayakan ulang tahunnya yang ke-9. Ayahnya mengajaknya ke toko mainan untuk memilih hadiahnya sendiri. Akhirnya Anna pun memilih sebuah boneka beruang lucu yang cukup besar. Sang ayah pun segera membawa boneka beruang tersebut ke kasir. Namun sebelum sampai di kasir, Anna melihat ada seorang anak laki-laki kecil yang ingin membeli sebuah mainan Lego. Tampak jelas anak dan ayahnya tersebut sedang berbicara serius. Sambil membuka dompet, ayah Anna pun langsung berkata, "Pasti anak itu menginginkan mainan itu tapi uang ayahnya tidak cukup." Mendengar perkataan ayahnya itu Anna segera mengembalikan boneka yang ia pilih dan mengambil mainan lego yang dipilih anak laki-laki tersebut. Mereka pun segera membayarnya. Namun Anna tidak menginginkan mainan itu untuk ia bawa pulang. Ia membisikkan sesuatu ke petugas kasir dan memintanya untuk membungkus mainan tersebut. Saat anak laki-laki itu hendak pulang bersama ayahnya, petugas kasir menghampirinya dan memberikan hadiah tersebut kepada anak laki-laki itu sambil berkata, "Ini hadiah untuk kamu. Kamu terpilih sebagai pengunjung yang beruntung hari ini." Saat dibuka, terlihat jelas di wajah anak kecil itu bahwa ia begitu berbahagia. Menjadi bahagia tidak harus selalu dengan membahagiakan diri sendiri atau dengan mendapatkan semua yang kita inginkan. Karena untuk menjadi bahagia pada dasarnya bisa dilakukan dengan membuat orang lain terlebih dahulu bahagia dan tertawa karena perbuatan baik kita. Jadi, marilah mulai saat ini kita belajar untuk memiliki sikap dan gaya hidup yang baru, yaitu berbahagia di kalau orang lain berbahagia karena perbuatan baik kita. Karena disaat orang lain tersenyum bahagia akibat perbuatan baik kita, maka Bapa di surga pasti akan tersenyum melihat perbuatan baik kita tersebut. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, mampukan aku untuk berbuat baik kepada setiap orang yang membutuhkannya. Aku percaya, kebaikan kecil yang kulakukan dengan ketulusan hati, akan menjadi berkat besar bagi mereka yang menerimanya. Amin. (Dod).

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Sabtu, 24 Desember 2022 Bacaan: "Supaya kamu dibaharui di dalam roh dan pikiranmu." (Efesus 4:23) Renungan: Pada suatu hari seorang ayah memenuhi janjinya untuk mengajak anaknya pergi memancing. Setelah seharian memancing ternyata mereka tidak mendapatkan seekor ikan pun. Dengan marah-marah sang ayah akhirnya mengajak anaknya pulang ke rumah. Ketika bertemu istrinya, suaminya berkata, "Hari ini adalah hari yang sangat sial. Sudah ambil cuti seharian ternyata tidak mendapatkan ikan satu ekor pun." Namun ketika istrinya berbicara dengan anak mereka tentang kegiatan memancing yang tidak menghasilkan ikan seekor pun sang anak berkata, "Aku sangat mengucap syukur kepada Tuhan karena hari yang luar biasa ini. Aku pergi memancing bersama ayah. Meskipun tidak mendapat seekor ikan pun tetapi aku punya kesempatan berbicara banyak dengan ayah. Hari ini adalah hari yang sangat menyenangkan bagi aku." Dalam kehidupan ini kita juga sering menghadapi hal yang sama yaitu mengalami atau menghadapi satu kejadian yang sama namun dengan tanggapan yang berbeda. Misalnya saat kita pulang ibadah. Tidak semua orang menanggapi khotbah yang mereka dengar dengan tanggapan yang baik. Ada yang cuek dan ada juga yang mengkritik. Namun ada pula beberapa orang yang mengucap syukur, merenungkan dan melakukan firman yang mereka dengar itu dalam kehidupan sehari-hari. Karena itu jangan heran bila tiap orang tidak mendapatkan berkat yang sama. Demikian pula dalam pekerjaan. Pekerjaan yang sama namun bisa mendatangkan tanggapan yang berbeda-beda. Ada orang yang merasa berat dan penuh tekanan, namun ada orang yang menganggap sesuai dengan kapasitasnya dan penuh tantangan. Jadi, marilah belajar memiliki tanggapan yang benar dalam setiap situasi yang kita alami. Belajarlah untuk memiliki cara pandang yang benar yaitu cara pandang ilahi dalam setiap kejadian yang kita alami, supaya kita tidak mudah frustasi, tidak mudah putus asa atau gampang bersungut-sungut. Sehingga kita dapat menghadapi kehidupan ini dengan penuh sukacita dan penuh semangat. Bersama Yesus kita akan mempunyai cara pandang Ilahi yang benar sehingga kita cakap dalam menanggung segala perkara. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, jadikanlah pikiranku menjadi pikiran-Mu sendiri, sehingga hatiku tetap penuh sukacita walau masalah masih mendera hidupku. Amin. (Dod).

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Jumat, 23 Desember 2022 Bacaan: TUHAN Allah berfirman: "Tidak baik, kalau manusia itu seorang diri saja. Aku akan menjadikan penolong baginya, yang sepadan dengan dia." (Kejadian 2:18) Renungan: Nathaniel takut memberitahu istrinya kalau ia baru saja dipecat dari pekerjaannya sebagai pramuniaga. Tapi, betapa takjub dirinya ketika istrinya justru senang dengan berita bahwa ia kehilangan mata pencahariannya. "Sekarang kau bisa menulis buku!" kata Istrinya. Nathaniel memang sudah lama ingin mencurahkan dirinya dalam penulisan sastra, tetapi hal-hal praktis menghalanginya. Ia tersentuh oleh antusias istrinya, tetapi kenyataannya ia masih bingung. Lalu ia pun berkata, "Ya, tapi dengan apa kita hidup, sementara aku menulis buku?" Istrinya pergi ke meja, membuka laci dan mengeluarkan setumpuk uang tunai. "Darimana kau bisa mendapatkan ini?" tanya Nathaniel sambil menangis. Istrinya tersenyum, "Saya selalu tahu kamu jenius dan suatu hari akan menulis sebuah mahakarya. Jadi setiap minggu saya telah menyisihkan uang. Saya telah menyimpannya dan cukuplah untuk bertahan selama satu tahun." Dengan menunjukkan imannya dan kemauannya pada keberhasilan suaminya, istri Nathaniel Hawthorne menginspirasinya untuk menulis. Pada tahun itu terbitlah The Scarlet Letter, salah satu novel besar dalam sastra Amerika. Pada mulanya memang Tuhan menciptakan manusia pria seorang diri, namun akhirnya Tuhan memberikannya pendamping yang berguna sebagai penolong yang sepadan. Namun seringkali dalam hubungan rumah tangga banyak orang melupakan hal itu. Satu dengan yang lain ingin lebih diperhatikan oleh pasangannya. Tuhan berkata kepada bahwa Ia akan menjadikan wanita sebagai seorang penolong yang sepadan bagi pria. Jika kita mengartikan kalimat ini, berarti seharusnya wanita lebih kuat dibandingkan pria, karena orang yang menolong pasti lebih kuat daripada yang ditolong. Misalnya, jika kita membawa barang dan kita tidak kuat maka akan ada orang lain yang menolong kita yang otomatis pasti tenaganya lebih besar dari kita. Jadi para suami, mari hargai istri sebagai penolong dalam hidup. Dan untuk para istri, biarlah bisa menjadi penolong yang tetap menghormati setiap perkataan suami dan jangan jemu-jemu untuk berdoa karena itu adalah kekuatan utama sang istri untuk menopang sebuah rumah tangga dan menolong suaminya. Jika kita sebagai anak muda yang ingin memasuki bahtera rumah tangga rumah, marilah kita mengerti tugas dan kewajiban masing-masing dalam sebuah pernikahan untuk membawa kehidupan pada pernikahan yang indah. Tidak ada seorangpun yang bisa berhasil dan menang seorang diri. Sehebat apapun dan sepandai apapun seseorang, ia tetap membutuhkan orang lain untuk menolong dan menopangnya dalam meraih keberhasilan. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, terima kasih untuk penolong sepadan yang telah Kau berikan dalam hidupku. Ajarilah aku untuk menghargai dan menghormatinya karena ia adalah hadiah dari-Mu untukku. Amin. (Dod).

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Senin, 19 Desember 2022 Bacaan: Pada waktu itu berkatalah Yesus: "Aku bersyukur kepada-Mu, Bapa, Tuhan langit dan bumi, karena semuanya itu Engkau sembunyikan bagi orang bijak dan orang pandai, tetapi Engkau nyatakan kepada orang kecil." (Matius 11:25) Renungan: Mahmoud Abdul Rauf adalah seorang pemain basket NBA penyandang 'tics', yaitu kehilangan kontrol atas organ tubuh seperti tangan, bahu dan mata. Tangannya sering bergerak sendiri tanpa mampu ia kendalikan, bahunya suka naik sendiri berkali-kali, sedangkan matanya terus berkedip tanpa henti. Tidak jarang ia melakukan sebuah aktivitas yang sama sampai berulang-ulang tanpa bisa ia hentikan. Dalam sehari Rauf bisa mengulangi melempar bola ke dalam keranjang sampai 10.000 kali. Sebenarnya Rauf sangat tersiksa dengan kondisinya itu. Ia kadang ingin berhenti, tetapi sangat susah. Namun tanpa disadarinya, dengan kelakuan ganjilnya itu Rauf sebenarnya sedang berlatih dan tengah memersiapkan diri menjadi salah seorang penembak bola terbaik dalam sejarah NBA. Statistik mencatat dalam seluruh lemparan bola yang ia lakukan, 93% diantaranya masuk dan menghasilkan poin. Alkitab menuliskan, Tuhan sering memakai orang-orang kecil yang memiliki banyak kekurangan untuk menjadi tokoh-tokoh terkemuka pada zamannya. Debora, seorang wanita, dipakai Tuhan menjadi hakim atas orang Israel untuk memimpin bangsa itu mengalahkan Sisera, Panglima tentara Kanaan yang menindas Israel. Tuhan juga bisa memakai Ehud, seorang yang kidal untuk menjadi penyelamat Israel guna menundukkan bangsa Moab dan membuat negeri itu aman hingga 80 tahun lamanya. Daud, seorang muda yang kemerah-merahan Tuhan pakai untuk mengalahkan Goliat seorang raksasa. Daud yang masih remaja itu membunuh Goliat hanya dengan memakai pengumban dan batu kecil dari sungai. Menjadi pelayan Tuhan adalah sebuah keputusan. Mungkin saat ini talenta yang kita miliki sebagai modal untuk melayani hanya sedikit, namun ketika kita membuat komitmen mau melayani Tuhan, percayalah dengan seiring waktu Dia akan terus menambahkan talenta yang kita miliki. Matius 25:29 berkata, "Karena setiap orang yang memunyai, kepadanya akan diberi, sehingga ia berkelimpahan. Tetapi siapa yang tidak memunyai, apapun juga yang ada padanya akan diambil dari padanya. Mulai hari ini, mari buat keputusan untuk melayani Tuhan. Apapun keadaan kita, bagaimanapun terbatasnya talenta yang kita miliki, Tuhan berkuasa untuk memunculkan kita menjadi pahlawan-pahlawan di kerajaan-Nya. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, hari ini aku mau membaharui komitmen untuk melayani-Mu. Aku mau menggunakan segala talenta yang ada untuk kemuliaan nama-Mu. Amin. (Dod).

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Sabtu, 17 Desember 2022 Bacaan: Tanya Yesus kepadanya: "Apa yang kaukehendaki supaya Aku perbuat bagimu?" Jawab orang buta itu: "Rabuni, supaya aku dapat melihat!" (Markus 10:51) Renungan: Ketika Bartimeus yang buta berteriak-teriak di pinggir jalan Yerikho, "Yesus, Anak Daud, kasihanilah aku!" Banyak orang mencoba untuk menghentikan jeritan hatinya. Tetapi Bartimeus berseru semakin kuat. Dan ketika Yesus memanggilnya, ia menanggalkan jubahnya dan segera pergi menghadap Yesus. Lalu Yesus bertanya, "Apa yang kau kehendaki supaya Aku berbuat bagimu?" Sungguh suatu tawaran yang indah, yang juga merupakan sebuah pertanyaan yang selalu Tuhan ajukan pada kita. Tetapi seringkali kita tidak dapat mendengarnya karena kita tidak memiliki sikap hati yang benar seperti Bartimeus. Bartimeus memang memiliki mata jasmani yang buta, namun ia memiliki mata iman yang mampu menembus dinding keterbatasan untuk melihat kuasa Yesus tercurah atas dirinya. Sebaliknya, kita yang memiliki mata jasmani yang melihat, namun memiliki sikap hati dan mata iman yang buta, sehingga kita hanya berputar-putar pada situasi yang buntu. Mata iman yang buta akan mendatangkan kelumpuhan mujizat Tuhan dalam hidup kita. Untuk itu, marilah kita menarik hikmah dari sikap hati Bartimeus, sehingga mampu mengusir kebutaan rohani dan mengalami kuasa-Nya di dalam hidup kita. Pertama, pada waktu Bartimeus mendengar orang banyak lewat, ia bertanya, "Apa itu?" Kata orang kepadanya, "Yesus, orang Nazaret lewat." Lalu ia berseru, "Yesus, Anak Daud, kasihanilah aku." Bartimeus mengetahui bahwa Yesus adalah Sang Pembuat Mujizat. Sehingga ketika ia mendengar tentang Dia, timbullah sikap hati yang penuh pengharapan dan berseru-seru kepada-Nya. Siapakah Yesus dalam kehidupan kita dan sejauh manakah kita mengenal pribadi-Nya? Pemahaman dan pengenalan yang benar tentang Dia akan sangat memberi dampak kepada kehidupan iman dan pengharapan kita. Kedua, banyak orang di sekitar Bartimeus mencoba menghentikan seruan hatinya. Namun semakin keras ia berseru. Sikap orang-orang di sekitarnya tidak menghentikan langkah kaki Bartimeus untuk terus berseru, bahkan ia berseru semakin kuat karena ia tidak tahu pada jeritan keberapakah suaranya akan dapat didengar oleh Yesus di tengah hiruk pikuk orang banyak itu. Hal apakah yang sering menghentikan kita menjerit di hadapan Tuhan Yesus? Apakah kekecewaan, keputusasaan, ketidakpercayaan, keraguan, kelelahan, kesombongan diri telah menghentikan langkah kita untuk memohon belas kasihan-Nya, sehingga kita menjadi pahlawan yang kalah sebelum berperang? Jangan kita menjadi lelah dan putus asa, mainkan teruslah berseru kepadanya siang dan malam, sampai ia muncul membenarkan kita. Ketiga, Bartimeus menanggalkan jubahnya agar tidak ada sesuatupun yang mungkin akan memperlambat langkahnya menghampiri Yesus, lalu ia segera mendapatkan Yesus. Apa jubah yang telah memperlambat langkah kita untuk menghampiri-Nya? Tanggalkanlah segala jubah keraguan karena Ia yang memanggil kita memiliki jawaban atas segala persoalan kita. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, mampukanlah aku menanggapi panggilan-Mu dan memandang Engkau dengan mata iman, sehingga aku mengalami Kuasa-Mu di dalam hidupku. Amin. (Dod).

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Jumat, 16 Desember 2022 Bacaan: "Jangan berteman dengan orang yang lekas gusar, jangan bergaul dengan seorang pemarah, supaya engkau jangan menjadi biasa dengan tingkah lakunya dan memasang jerat bagi dirimu sendiri." (Amsal 22:24-25) Renungan: Suatu kali Billy Martin manajer baseball mengadakan perjalanan untuk berburu dengan Mickey Mantel. Mereka pergi ke peternakan teman Mickey yang bisa memberi izin berburu di peternakannya. Akhirnya mereka tiba dan Mickey menyuruh Martin menunggu di mobil sementara ia meminta izin pada sahabatnya. Sahabatnya pun memberi izin tetapi dengan satu permintaan. "Saya memiliki satu keledai peliharaan yang buta di kandang. Saya tidak tega melihatnya menderita. Maukah kau menembaknya untukku?" pinta sahabatnya. Mickey pun menyetujui. Saat ia kembali ke mobil, ia berpura-pura marah, membanting pintu sambil sampai tertutup. "Ada apa?" tanya Martin. Miki menggeram, "Temanku tidak mengizinkan kita berburu di tanahnya. Aku kesal dan aku akan pergi ke kandangnya untuk menembak salah satu keledainya." Mickey mengendarai mobil ke kandang seperti orang gila. Martin yang bersamanya pun merasa ngeri dan berteriak, "Kita tidak dapat melakukan ini." "Coba lihat saja," jawab Mickey. Tiba di kandang, Mickey melompat dari mobil dengan senapannya, berlari ke dalam dan langsung menembak keledai tersebut. Tetapi saat ia meninggalkan kandang, ia mendengar dua tembakan lagi. Dia berlari ke dalam mobil dan melihat bahwa Martin telah mengeluarkan senapannya juga. "Apa yang kau lakukan Martin?" teriaknya. "Kita tunjukkan pada orang brengsek itu. Aku baru saja membunuh dua dari sapi-sapinya!" kata Martin dengan wajah penuh kemarahan. Begitu cepat virus kemarahan menular. Tidak menunggu waktu berhari-hari untuk membiarkannya, dalam hitungan menit pun ia sudah tersebar. Terkadang tanpa disadari kita pun sering bersikap seperti Martin. Emosi kita mudah terpancing dengan situasi yang memicu kita untuk kesal. Tetapi firman Tuhan mengajak kita agar tidak lekas gusar dan marah bagaimanapun keadaannya. Seseorang pernah berkata bahwa kemarahan mengurangi limphocytes dalam tubuh kita, yang menyebabkan menurunnya antibodi yang diperlukan untuk memerangi penyakit-penyakit menular. Untuk itu sangatlah bijak jika kita bersikap tenang dalam menyikapi keadaan yang panas. Untuk bisa menghindari kemarahan dengan cepat ada baiknya kita memeerhatikan keadaan yang sebenarnya dan informasi yang kita dapat harus terbukti jelas. Jangan lekas gusar saat mendengar suatu perkataan atau keadaan yang membuat kita marah. Dengan memiliki kesabaran maka kita akan beruntung. Selain jadi berkat, orang lain pun senang bersahabat dengan kita. Karena tidak ada orang yang suka bergaul dengan pemarah, malah ia akan dijauhi oleh orang-orang di sekitarnya. Untuk itu marilah kita membentengi hati dengan kesabaran. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, biarlah aku semakin bijak dalam menyikapi situasi yang mungkin memicu kemarahan dan mampukanlah aku untuk sabar menghadapinya. Amin. (Dod).

I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Washington. Grew up in Washington. Um, I am obvious I'm a white American. I am German, native American, and French Canadian. And, and yeah, coming to you on the land of the Suquamish as we enter today.(00:01:33):My name is Jessica Guidry. I'm the Equity Program manager at the Kids at Public Health District. I also like Kaylee, um, joined this meeting from the land of the Suquamish. I actually live, um, and what was, which is still the, the Port Madison Reservation. So closer to Indianola. Um, and I, I guess ethnic ethnically I am, um, Asian, English, scotch Irish, and maybe some other British isles there. But, uh, um, I actually grew up in Bangkok, Thailand, and I've been in the US though for a long time. And I was born in the States(00:02:08):Next, um, Maria Fergus. I'm the community en Engagement specialist at, uh, Kita Public Health District. I've been in this role for, um, a little bit over a month. And one of the reasons why I applied for this job is because I, uh, I know that last year the Kita Public Health District declared racism at public health crisis. Um, and I wanted to be part of what they were doing. I, my pronouns are her, and she, I was born in Mexico, but I grew up in California. English is my second language, and I've been in Washington state for about seven years and working with our communities, um, our Spanish speaking communities as a volunteer for different organizations since the end of 2015.Well, good morning everyone. Um, I stepped away cause you know what I was doing, but, um, , uh, just bring, kinda bring me up to speed. We just doing our introductions.Just so you are, where you're located, um, what you're up to, and, um, yeah. And then we'll jump in.(00:03:34):Okay. Well, good morning everyone. Good afternoon now. Um, my name is Karen Vargas and, um, I am on Bainbridge Island, um, working with our kids across Kitsap County. I am, um, one of, uh, the co-founders, um, for Latch, uh, living Life Leadership and Kitsap Black Student Union. Um, we have been working over 30 plus years with our school districts, um, with our multicultural advisory council here on Bainbridge Island, working on equity issues, uh, really since I, um, moved here from the East Coast. So, um, what we're working on now with Kitsap Race Coalition is to, um, to have our, our county have a commission on Truth and Reconciliation that would, uh, actually deal with some of the issues that we see manifesting here in our county, um, with our bipo communities and with our students of color, uh, within the school districts and in the community.Um, and, and hoping that we, we would be able to, um, move our communities forward in a healthier way, to be able to address some of the, the issues that have been, um, you know, uh, showing up, whether it's in our churches or whether it's in our, our communities or on our jobs or, or in our school districts, even in our health districts. You know, how do we move forward when there has been, um, these type of, of issues that continue to manifest, you know? And I think that when we can move forward doing intervention and prevention, um, to address these issues, it would help us to reconcile them more in, in a healthy way. Um, and so, um, that's kind of the work that we've been working on. And so,Danielle (00:05:49):Thanks. Um, well, welcome everybody. I, I know we kind of all have connected and collaborated around, um, what is happening in Kitsap County. And perhaps if you're listening, you're not in Kitsap County, but you are in a county or a, a town or a section of a town, even a larger town. We, we all have these, like, there's like the 30,000 foot view of like the larger area where we're at. And we have these smaller cultural microcosms I think that happen in the areas where we actually physically root our bodies in housing and, um, business and life and school and our raise our children. And so we're coming to you from one location. Um, it's not, it's not gonna be the same as every location, but hopefully what we talk about can be something that we can, we can learn from you if you reach out and we hope you can learn just from us as we have a conversation.But Kaylee and I, like, we've been really close since the pandemic. She helped me survive the pandemic. She had her office next to mine and we would yell at each other down the hall or, um, check in, especially when all of our clients were online. And we had started these groups. One of the first groups we ever started, um, I think it was like the second or third group right after the murder of George, George Floyd, to engage white people that identify as white or in a white body, um, and what that means to their racial identity. And so Kaylee and I started these groups and we jumped in cuz I said, Hey Kaylee, do you wanna do this? And she's like, yeah, sure. And we jumped in, we're like, whoa, we don't know if we know what we're doing. And then pretty soon we're like, actually, I think we don't know what we're doing, but we do know what we're doing in some ways.So offering good care, listening, um, reflecting stories, being witness to stories, engaging, uh, the traumas that have been that turn into weapons against bodies of color. So those, some of the ways Kayleigh and I have talked about things and, you know, we both Kayleigh and I both have students in the local school system and have had kids that are, uh, part of marginalized communities or adjacent to marginalized communities. And it's, we've also noticed the mental health of our students and our families and, you know, become more and more passionate about it because obviously why it might not be obvious, but it's something we deal with in our everyday real life and, and we care deeply for, I think I can say that on behalf of both of us. But Kayleigh, you can speak for yourself obviously, but that's how I come to the conversation as a, a Mexican woman in the town of Poulsbo, Washington on Suquamish land, married to an immigrant, and, um, we speak Spanish and English at home. And so just, you know, just curious to hear, you know, how that intersects with your different areas of work and, and your passions here in Kitsap County.Kali (00:08:59):Well, I guess I can go first just cuz Danielle was just talking a lot about me, . Uh, but yes, uh, Danielle did invite me into starting groups and I went with her with fear and trembling. Um, had done some work on my own, around my own racism for a while. My graduate program, this at the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology really, um, helped me to begin that work at a deeper level. And so then I did some work on my own, but had a real awareness when I started groups around racism that I definitely have racism still a part of my world as I grew up in a very white, uh, community and Spokane. And, um, as we began those groups, we did predominantly reach out to other white people or people in white passing bodies and, um, have found some like goodness in diving deeper into people's stories around racism.And that's kind of where we started, um, wondering with people around like, when did you notice your own racial identity? When, when did you become aware of racism? Um, kind of going all the way back to the beginning to help people make connections to like, what is still going on inside their bodies when they try to have these hard conversations with people in the community. Um, so I have learned a lot. I still have a lot to learn. Um, and along with what Danielle said, I also am a mental health therapist and work with a lot of teenagers in our community here in Kitsap County from different school districts. Plus like she said, I have some teenage children. All of my children are white, um, and, and have diverse friend groups. But I have become increasingly, well, I've always been concerned about the issues of racism in our community.I, I remember as a young little girl calling it out in my own parents, and that didn't always go well. Um, but then it was very under the surface as a white person, uh, you didn't see it as overtly as it has become now in 2020 since the election of Donald Trump, the, like, overt, blatant racism has, uh, been shocking. And yet it's always been there. So, um, but as I work with my own children and then work with students in my practice, I'm just, I am deeply concerned about the mental health of our kids. I think it's hard enough as an adult to go through these past few years, but I am concerned about our teens and what they are facing, um, of all races. I I think even my white daughter is very disturbed by the racial slurs that she constantly hear in the hallway and doesn't really know how to even go about addressing it or feel safe enough to even say anything. Um, so that's part of why I'm here today. And, um, had the privilege of going to a meeting, uh, last weekend with Kitsap Race. And so, yeah, I, I just, I hope for continued leadership amongst adults to like help our students and help our communities, even our adults in our communities, especially. I have a passion for the white people in our community. I help them be able to take steps forwards to be able to sit in these conversations and, and be productive and not as harmful. So that's how I enter this work.Speaker 5 (00:12:34):So I entered this work, um, because I grew up in California and it was very diverse. Um, and when I moved up here to Washington, uh, there just wasn't as much diversity, especially in the PAL area. And my daughter, um, who was a sophomore at the time, was invited to join the North Kids Up Equity Council. And so I started participating in that and started hearing stories, and I started working with the parents and children that are Spanish speaking. And, well, I kept hearing more stories and, uh, realized that I needed to be a little bit more proactive. And so I, I joined, um, stand up for racial justice search and I attended some other meetings, got some training, realized that I have a lot of internalized racism and racist behaviors myself and what ency ideology that, uh, I hadn't been aware of. Um, that was part of my thinking.And so, um, over time I continued to stay involved. At the beginning of this year, I heard about the student direct equity campaign under a base and became a adult, um, volunteer to support the, the students that were in the campaign and have been doing that since then. Um, also participated in the race forward, uh, healing together, meeting that we had this last, um, two weekends ago with, uh, with the race and try and stay as active as I can in the community to to hear, um, hear the stories. So I, I know what's going on and just stay updated and what's going on in my community.Jessica (00:14:41):Years, you know, the health district was, you were very, you were very light can Oh, okay. Is this better? Yeah, sorry about that. That, um, so how I got started in this work, so for 13 and a half years at the, you know, at the health district, I was their public health emergency preparedness and response program manager. And to be honest, I didn't really address equity head-on, um, in the emergency management field. Um, we, instead of using the term, you know, equity injustice, we used terms like access and functional needs, which to me doesn't really get to the core of the issue, but that was kind of the verbiage. But first it was vulnerable population then at risk and things like that. But it wasn't until, you know, the pandemic, um, that my role was able to switch a little. Um, I supervised initially our Covid vaccine equity liaison, and that was the first time at the health district that we had somebody with the word equity in their title.And she was specifically hired, her name was, but this was the first time we hired someone to specifically look at differences and, and how we can address those differences and outcomes and access. And, and so it was really exciting to have Holly on board. And as Holly was doing outreach with the community, um, and she built this Vaccine Equity collaborative, she started hearing from folks, you know, you know, this is great that the health district, you know, wants to address equity and vaccine, but what are you going to do about racism? And before the pandemic? Well, um, you know, we, we've talked about it and in public health circles, racism as a public health issue was kind of c was circulating, right? But I think it wasn't until the pandemic when we saw the differences in, um, who was getting hospitalized.You know, the covid who was getting sick because of covid and who, um, didn't get vaccinated because of access issues to stress of government and, you know, rightful distress of government, um, where all this came about. So when Holly heard this feedback and heard, you know, are, you know, is, is public health going to claim, um, racism as a public health crisis? You know, she came to me and some other folks and asked about this and we said, you know, yes, let's talk about this as an agency. And our leadership was very supportive and wanted to know more about declaring racism as a public health crisis. So, you know, at that point I was more of a cheerleader more than anything else. You know, I was involved in some groups kite race or you know, that, um, which Aku helped found, um, you know, equity, um, race and community engagement coalition kind of, you know, here and there.But when the Public Health Board declared racism a public health crisis, that was in response to community demand or a request, if you will. Um, and I could talk more about how that process came about, but as a result of that resolution, the health district actually allocated resources to equity. Before equity was more of, you know, if, if certain programs were, sorry, I use the word program. If certain teams within the health district were passionate about equity, they would incorporate it, but it was not, um, universal within the health district. And we didn't have like a, a, a shared terminology, things like that, or shared expectation even that we would address equity. Um, but with the, the, the resolution, it has several commitments in it. And one of them has to do with actually having staff. And this is really important because other resolutions across the country don't have commitments.They don't allocate resources. And just telling a government agency, oh yes, you'll handle equity without putting a budget line item means that it'll be kind of an afterthought, right? Or it's kind of like another layer among other layers. So this resolution said that, you know, you'll hire a community liaison and what our leadership ended up doing is say, no, this needs to be a separate program. We're going to hire a program manager first. So that was really important with that resolution. Another thing, another component of that resolution is that the health district will have, and I think the, um, certain training, and I believe the topics were, um, cultural competency, anti-racism and health literacy plus other topics. But those are the three topics, if I remember correctly, that were called out in the resolution. And the, and then one of the other commitments was that we would co-create solutions to systemic inequities with our community partners.And the reason why I said this is pretty huge for us is because, you know, often we look at health topics like health, excuse me, like healthy eating, active living, smoking cessation, or food safety, but actually dealing with poverty, racism, you know, I don't think we've, no, no, I might not be being, I might be unfair about this, but I don't think we've necessarily ha handled its head on, right? We've maybe gone to some housing meetings, but really more like in our limited public health capacity. So to me, this co-creation of solutions with community partners is huge. And I, and I do believe that often in government, we think we know best, right? And so we're like, oh, well, we're gonna do our research and we're gonna find best practices. But instead, you know, our community often has the answers to our, to our, to the issues that we have.It's just bringing them to the table, giving them equal voice and you know, honestly compensating them and treating them like consultants and, you know, a as equals, not just, oh, we're gonna, you know, get community input and then we're done, kind of thing. But that, that continued partnership. So anyway, um, so when this resolution passed, um, then my position was, was created. I applied for it and I was very lucky to get it. Um, and I, I started in this position full-time about last October or so, the resolution declaring racism of public health crisis start, um, it, that, that passed in May, 2021. So it's been about a almost a year and a half now. And to my knowledge, we're still the only governmental entity in Kitsap that's really addressed this and has staffing for it. Now, this might change because I, I, I'm not saying that the health district started anything, and I think really it's more the advocacy of folks like [inaudible] and, and Kitsap Race and all these other organizations that are pushing government.But I think we, we may start to see city governments actually investing in hiring and equity, uh, either race equity or all equity consultants or, or, um, staff member to really push that issue forward in their org organization. Um, so in this past year, um, there have been a couple things that I've been working on. So one is looking at our internal structure and our internal culture. Um, we don't talk about, you know, a year ago we didn't talk about equity as much. Um, so it was doing, you know, as, as designing employee training, meeting with all our different, prog all of our different teams. So talk about equity because, uh, oh, is Jessica, you know, the politically correct police, is she going to white shame me? So it's really the, the first year I had to really build those relationships. And luckily, because I've been at the health district so darn long, people knew, oh, you know, they, they were familiar with me.They, they knew that I wasn't just gonna shut them down. And then, and, and just being present, and as I talked with different teams, I realized, you know, they, they do have equity mindsets, but they just don't call it equity. But we have some teams who are really focused on poverty, but they might have actually had the conversation about how does racism affect poverty? How is that a driver for poverty? So, you know, anyway, so, so with this, so we have this internal bucket of work. So looking at training and, and right now our, our first training with the employees is gonna deal with identity and power. We're calling it positionality training. And the idea is that our, our training has to deal with the individual, the organization, the community, and the society. So that's, so we're building a training program based on that. We did do an internal equity assessment to figure out what we can do better.And, and I don't if I had to do about this Maria, but honestly, one of the biggest takeaways from that assessment was our staff doesn't know how we react to community input related to our priorities. So that needs to change, you know, either it's, it's a lack of awareness in our agency, or maybe we don't do it enough. So there, there's that piece. And then with, with community partnerships, you know, really trying to look at how we engage with community and how we see them as partners differently. Um, so the fact, like one thing I I also encourage, like me and Marina do, is just to be at community events without an agenda. It's not a grant deliverable. And actually, Aku really, um, helped bring this light for me. And I, and I should have realized this years ago, but you know, when, when Holly, the Vaccine Equity Collaborative, um, excuse me, the Vaccine Equity Liaison.So her position was eliminated due to, you know, that, that that phase of work was done. But I think what was missed was the community impact, because she built such amazing relationships in the thick of the pandemic where people were really looking for someone to trust in government. And I remember in Aku, I I, I think about this a lot, um, when we had our, her, um, goodbye party, I had one person, a community leader who was angry about it. Yes. And rightfully so. And, and you know, one of the things I've had to learn about in, in this position is not to be defensive and not to be like, well, our leadership didn't see enough work for a person. And just to be like, you know what? It is okay to be angry. I'm angry. I don't want her to leave. This was not my decision.I was not consulted about this. And, and, and that's, and, and, and I think what, what I'm, what I'm hoping to build and, and, and, and get some feed, you know, and, and, and, and build my own muscle and getting community feedback without having to be like, well, our agency policy exist. So at that meeting, not only was I not chewed out, I should say, but, um, I had someone speak very passionate to me, and he's said, Jessica, this is not about you. I'm like, no, I, I see that. And I said, you know, so acknowledging that hurt and letting my agency know also, hey, it hurts when your, when your main contact an organization leaves, you can't just replace that. So there's that piece. But then even a Kue telling me, you know, Jessica, you know, with, and, and I'm paraphrasing cuz a a kue says so much more eloquently than I do, you know, in government you have these grant deliverables and you go to community and you ask community to help and community will do the labor for you, you know, doing outreach, looking for places, for example, to do vaccine clinics and other stuff.But then when your grant deliverables are done and the grant funding's over, you leave. So that really stuck with me. And, um, one of the great things about how our equity program is funded is not funded by grants. And so one of the big things, you know, for us to build relationships is to go to meetings that are not just grant driven. Um, just to listen. So for example, Marie and I are gonna be going to the com, the, the community and police policing together, you know, the PACT meeting that, um, uh, pastor Richmond Johnson and, and, uh, partnering for Youth Achievement and others are having this, this, this, um, this week. I don't know if the health district has ever participated in that, but in order for us to know what's important to the community, we actually have to be there in meetings. So that's, and, and I'm so sorry to be taking up so much time, but this is trying some of the ways I'm trying to change how we do things at the health district.The funny thing is, and I get asked, well, Jessica, can you send this to so-and-so? And it's like, you know, yes, but do you know how much we invest in going to meetings and building those relationships? But we're, we're seeing re returns. But another thing that we're doing is we are launching what we call the Health Equity Collaborative. So I mentioned that during the pandemic we had the Vaccine Equity Collaborative. It was very limited though. Cause it was just looking at vaccine with the Health Equity Collaborative, there is no deadline for this because health inequities exist and they will continue to exist until we really address those hard issues. Right. So I'm really excited about the Self Equity collaborative because the collaborative will decide what topic we talk about. And that's that piece I was talking about, about co-creating solutions. Um, it's not the Health District saying, oh, we need to focus on someone that's public healthy.No, we're gonna, um, in, in January come together, you know, we'll look at data, we'll, we'll listen to stories, we'll listen to input from the collaborative members and then figure out we wanna address. And then, you know, I I, I've also committed to Maria in my time to actually address and, and support the work that the collaborative will eventually think of. Um, but what's different about that collaborative also is that we're paying people who participate and are not being paid there by their organizations. That is not something that we typically do in government. But, um, some of you may know that the Public Health Board expanded last year. No, actually it was earlier this year, excuse me, due to a state law that passed last year. And we now have non-elected members, which is huge because across the country you saw politics getting involved in public health.Now we have, um, now we actually have five, I think, new members. And it's amazing. So we now have a member, so we have a member on, on our board from each of our neighboring tribes. We only had to have one per law, but our board decided that they wanted to have a spot for the Suquamish tribe and the Port Gamble ALM tribe. I just found out today that our Port Gamble ALM tribe position is filled. And the person's gonna be Jolene Sullivan, who's a health services director with the Port Gamble Skm tribe from the Squamish tribe. And, and, and she's sorry. And Jolene is a tribal member of the Port Gamble Skm tribe, with the Squamish tribe. We're gonna have the health services director there. His name is, um, Steven Kutz, and he's a member of the Cowlitz Tribe. So he is originally from, you know, southwest Washington.And then we have, um, Drayton Jackson and who's really ex and that's really exciting. He's on our board. We also have Dr, um, Michael Watson. He's with, uh, Virginia Mason, Franciscan Health. And then we have, um, Dr. Um, Taras, oh my gosh. Kirk sells who's, I believe, a public health research researcher. So we have this expanded board, and our board members who are not elected are also being compensated. So we followed off that model because, you know, sometimes it's kind of a wait and see. But that was precedent setting for us. And I think because we are compensating our board members, were non-elected, we have this, I was able to, to, to propose to our leadership, Hey, if we're gonna be doing this health equity collaborative, we need to pay our, you know, our, our folks who are not being paid by their organizations. There's national precedent for this.You're seeing that more national, you know, nationally with governments paying their consultants, right? We pay our d e i consultants, we pay strategic planning consultants. You know, Akua is a huge, um, community consultant and we need to start paying folks like that. But like her, like, you know, um, all the other folks are giving us input. So anyways, so we have this collaborative, we had our first meeting earlier this month, and we're having our, our visioning meeting in January. And Aya, I remember, you know, earlier this year you talked about how as a community we need to have this visioning process. And one piece of feedback I got from the collaborative meeting that we had earlier this month was, well, Jessica, we need to also include Citi and county officials. Cuz the only government officials at that meeting we're public health folks. So in the future, you know, also bringing other governmental folks.So there, there's a, there's a lot going on. Um, and, and I think another thing, and, and I promise I'll, I'll stop is, um, is elevating the concerns of our community within the health district. So, for example, and I really wanna give Maria credit for this because of her passion on working with youth. I, I, you know, I, I, I don't mentor youth. I have my two kiddos, and that's kind of the, the, the extent of, of, of my impact on youth. But, um, you know, it was through conversations with her, you know, meeting you Danielle, and, and hearing about other community meetings, you know, concerned about mental health, especially of our Bipo youth. Um, you know, elevating that to our leadership, letting our leadership know, hey, this is an a concern. And what's exciting is, um, when I mentioned this to our community health director, Yolanda Fox, she's like, well, you know, this other department, you know, our chronic disease prevention team, they may have funds to help with these kind of initiatives.So it's also networking within my own agency and Maria and my agency to see who can help with these, with these issues and figuring out, okay, well how can this also fit? Because the health district is also doing strategic planning, um, starting early next year. We're also participating in Kitsap community resources, um, community needs assessment. Ray and I both have been note takers and, um, contributors to their focus groups, for example. But then also I've been doing some keen form of interviews for Virginia Mason, Franciscan Health, um, community assessment. So we're hearing from community leaders, but then also going to community meetings about their needs. And we're trying to elevate that as well to our, to our leadership. And that's, so there's a lot going on from the health district, I think. Kuya, you're up.Akuyea (00:30:32):Yes. Oh my God. Go Jessica, go run, girl, run you and Maria, this is how we elevate, this is how we transform. This is how we begin to shift the paradigm for the opportunity to be heard. Oh, cross, we are gonna level the playing field for leveling. When I say level, I mean our young people, our parents, our community, our school districts, our, you know, health districts, our government. How do we do this collective work? Especially when you're dealing with historical institutionalized racism that we know is a crisis across the line. I don't care. It's a, not just in the health district, it's in our community, it's in our school, it's in our families, it's in our history. It's in the d n a of this country. So how do we begin to address that and move that where we can begin to reconcile, we know the history is there for us to sit here and, and, and act as if that this has not been a problem in an issue in our nation for hundreds.And it is not just that, it's in our nation, it our, our institutions. Were built on it. We, we, we have these systemic pieces that we have to deal with. That's why it was important when we started Kitsap e rates that we said, we gotta look at our schools, we gotta look at our health districts. We gotta look at our city government. We gotta look at our faith-based organizations, which Danielle, you know, that it exists within all of these institutions. We gotta look at our businesses that say, and I said, you know, when you come in and, and you try to do this type of work, and especially these organizations have in their mission statement that we're undoing racism, or we got, we're gonna be looking at equity, inclusion, diversity, multicultural. And they say that this is all within their mission and they check the box, but there's no accountability.There is no moving these, these issues to a place. If it's not in there, where is their, uh, district improvement plan? If it's not written in there, where is there, where is it in their budget? It's not in there. It, it doesn't exist. It's just they check the box to say they're doing this, but they're not the, the, the, the organization is not being held accountable for what they say is in their goals. Cuz they wrote 'em in their goals. They, they, they, they've got it language in their goals, but then how do you begin to hold them accountable to say they are? And so I was so, I was like, yes, Jessica, because if it's not in the budget, if they're not intentional, if they're not moving equity and inclusion and diversity forward in these institutionalized policy practice and procedures, then it, it really, you know, it doesn't exist.You know, it is that thing that's out there in la la land. So when you file, how do we begin to, to look at that, the training? Where is the training? Because you gotta shift the mindset. You've gotta begin to transform how people are going to step into this work of equity and inclusion. And you gotta give them tools. You gotta be able to say, look, you need training. What is cultural competency training? What is the gear training? What are these trainings that are available? Where is the training from the People's Institute? Where is the training for? Because actually, if you look in our history, we've got a lot of history that have the Freedom schools and all of them, they were doing this work back in the day, but there was a shift back in the day where they stopped when they started killing off the leaders and started, you know, manipulating city governments and working in legislation and all of these things.You know, we, there was a halt during that period, period when they were doing all the civil rights and trying, you'd think of it, all those leaders that they, they really assassinated that was moving race equity and, and inclusion forward. You know, our presidents, our our black leaders, all of those leaders that they were taking out, you know, look at that history, look at what was being done in legislature, what was being done, set in place. So we have to look at the systems that continue to hold these inequities in place so that we can't move forward. And then there was a point in time, you know, during, um, this last couple of years that just really highlighted all the inequities, all the disparities, all of the, the racist, you know, uh, uh, practices and policies that was in place that really hindered us. And we said we needed to look at these things.Um, you know, with the killing of George Floyd and the murders that was going on with the pandemic, the pandemic really set it off because we could see if it was actual, we could see how disconnected and how, how all of these disparities were, were being, you know, manifest showing. They would just, they were just in your face. How you gonna not address stuff that's in your face and then all of the racial, you know, um, one of the things that we started when I think it was even before Pandemic, before George Floyd was all of the, um, things that was being manifested during the, the, uh, during the presidency of, of our wonderful President , we won't say his name, we won't say his name, you know, and that's the thing. We won't say his name, but we know who, who, who that was, that perpetuated a lot of racial tension in our nation and begin to cultivate it, to begin to really nurture all of that unhealthy, you know, behavior and mindset.And, and, and when, when we look at the history and we understand that racism has always been a crisis in our nation. And if we just looked at it and looked at the concerns of racial diverse communities and understand that it, it hasn't, it, it has never been a healthy, uh, history, but when we tuck it away and sweep it under the ground as if it doesn't exist, we do ourself a harm. And then when we look at how education plays a role, when we look at how health plays a role, you know, health and education are interdisciplinaries, and if we not looking at how all of these systems are connected that continue to perpetuate all of these internalized structures that perpetuate these disparities, then I think we're not doing, uh, a good job at being able to undo the institutionalized pieces of, of racism and how we we begin to, to break down those barriers and begin to level the playing field and begin to get services, you know, and begin to get opportunities and the financing.You know, um, racism has played a key in poverty. It's play a key role in health disparities. It's played a key role in education. If you guys think about it, you know, back in the day when they were building all these institutions, you know, um, we weren't a la even allowed to read or write in the sixties when they wanted, you know, when they were talking all about let's integrate these schools and everything, oh, you know, look at the racial tension there was just from us to be able to go to school with one another. And that's not been that long. That's been in our lifetime, it hasn't been hundreds of years ago. Oh, little Rock nine and all of that unrest and all that has not civil rights and all that. That's, that's not been long at all. We've not come that far. And there was a halt to all of that work on undoing all of those institution life pieces. And, and when, and I can say it, when, when those assassinations begin to happen, there was a shift where everybody was pulling back from trying to do that work, but yet it didn't go away. It still needs to be done. So as we move forward, we talk about how do we, how do we begin to look at models and, and the work, the foundation of that work that was laid prior to us, even now, if you go back in, in the sixties, you'll see boy, they had it going on.Those models, those sit-ins and all those things that they were doing to change policy, to change institutional practices. You know, there's no need for us to reinvent the wheel. We've just gotta begin to, to pick up the work and, and start doing the work again. There was a definite fear that came, uh, into our communities and our nations when they begin to kill our leaders for standing for what was right. The murders of Medgar Evers and Martin Luther King, and all of them, you know, you look back at that time, the, those ones that, even the Black Panthers, they exterminated those young people and they, and, and they put 'em in jail.There was two options. You, they were either exterminated or they were incarcerated, but they were definitely gonna dismantle those disruptors that was calling for equity. So, yeah. And, and when you have all kinds of hate mail and hate literature that's being flooded across our nation. Um, and I could tell you, um, back in 2018 when, when we started the Race equity Network, it was because there was hate literature being flooded across Kitsap County. Our churches was being people who are being attacked, racially slurred, and all kinds of things happening in the community. That community members went to our city council and said, what y'all gonna do about this stuff? Y'all see it's all coming up. You mean the government? Y'all gonna do nothing. Not gonna say nothing. What's up? So they decided they were going to, to at least have a race equity advisory council to the city council members that would deal with all these disparities and all these racial incidents that was popping off.But then, you know, they get in there and they wanna be political and tie their hands and say what they can and can't do, and don't even wanna take the training. I mean, by now, that was 2018, here we are going into 2023, our pobo still ain't got one South kit still ain't got one. We still don't got our commission on troop and reconciling. We, it's, it's still being pushed back. The pushback on moving equity, race equity forward, it's still, that's live and well. And for us to understand what we really are up against, you have to transform minds. And one of the things with, you know, with the education system banning books and all of these things, I said, what is that all about? You better know what that's all about. You have to have a greater understanding. Because my, my thinking is, if we don't even wanna be truthful about our history and teach true history and teach our young people in the schools, I said, that's dangerous ground. We're walk, walking on.But that's something that needs to be looked at very carefully because it starts in the educational system. If you're not even gonna teach to it, if you are not even going to give our young people true information, you know, when you're talking about, oh, these books can't be read, I was like, whoa, whoa, whoa. A red flag should be going up for all of us in our communities and all of us in the nation. What is that? Yeah, you better find out what's the, at the root of all of that. So we do have a lot of work to do. Did this, this, I mean, the work is plenties, the laborers are few.And then how do we that are doing the work, how do we come together and work in a collective collaborative way that can help us move these things forward in, in, uh, a healthy way? Many hands make light work. Many of us, you know, yes. My my area of of concentration might be education. Mine might be health, mine might be city government. Mine might be the, the faith community. Mine might be just community members. But what happens when we begin to cultivate unified work to address these issues across those barriers? Because we all have the same goal, but look at how we work in silos. What can we do to break down barriers and really build community between the community of those that are doing the work?You know, do we lay aside our own agendas? Just like Jessica was saying, we just wanna go to li How do we come alongside and support? How do we come alongside and just listen? How do we come in and hear what the community needs are and all of those things. But sometime we gotta set our own egos aside for the greater work because the work is bigger than we are. You know, it took back in the day, when I think about all of those civil rights leaders and, and it, and, and believe you me, the environment was more hostile to make that change back then. You know, you, you had people gunning, people holding people. Come on now the history's there, but yet we wanna erase some of that history and to say, no, this is the only part we wanna teach of that, that history. You know, we talk about our, our native, uh, and our indigenous communities that was here. And understand, and I'll keep saying it, as long as I have breath in my body, I come from a stolen people brought to a stolen land where they exterminated the indigenous tribes that was here to be able to capitalize on their land and everything else. And that history, you know, it's like, oh, we don't wanna talk about that.But when you don't address the atrocities that have happened, it will keep coming up because you never went back and never healed that land. You never healed all of that, uh, trauma and all those things. You know, one of the things that I always look at, I do look at, I do look at what happened over in Germany. That entire nation had to deal with the atrocities that Hitler committed. And it wasn't until they had to deal with their own atrocities that healing began to, to, to move those communities forward in a way where they could, you'll never be able to erase what happened. But they have to be able to heal those family, heal, move towards healing, move towards reconciling those things. But when you just step over all the atrocities you've committed and, and, and say, oh, oh, they ain't this and that ain't that. That is a shipwreck. That's a a, that's a recipe for destruction.And so how do we begin to do the work of healing? Because the health district, and I say this to Jessica and to the health district, y'all are supposed to be in the healing business. I mean, that's what you say. And then I say to the education people, y'all supposed to be in education. What are y'all doing? Health, health and education for some and not for all. And justice. Justice for who? Justice for some are justice for whom. See, we got to get, we, we have to understand that we have to begin to shift the mindsets of those that can't see these things.You know, we have to begin to say, how do we take the scales off of people's eyes so they can see clearly that these are things that we, we definitely have to, to work towards? How do we unstop the ears so that they can hear the voices and hear, um, the things that need to be heard? Because some people, you know, some, and I can say this cause one of my young people said to me, she said, you know, what do you do with people that just wanna fight? They don't, they, they're not trying to heal. They're not trying to, they just wanna fight.I said, so how do you become peacemakers in the fight? How do you, how do we step into that role that we can at least be able to, to speak words that can, um, prick hearts and minds and transform, uh, the communities that we're serving? Because we're all serving, we're all serving our communities in a way, you know? And I, you know, it, it, it's hard when you always gotta walk through dodoo. I don't know. You know, I'm just throwing it out there like that. You know, when you gotta crawl through feces every day, that's, you know, those that are in plumbing and stuff like that. I don't know how they do it, but is it needed? Definitely.So we, we do, we, we, we can look at that. We can do some collective visioning that can help our communities to move forward in a way that can really meet the needs. You know, because I, I always have said our county isn't so large that we can address this issue and that we can do this work and we can do this work. Well, we're not a King County, we're not a Pierce County. We're a Kitsap County. And collectively, we should be able to move things forward in a healthier way. That guess what could be a model, not just for our state, but for the nation. Uh, you know, a little Kitsap County has changed the way that they address inequities. The way that they, with racism, the way that they deal with disparities, the way that they deal with all of these unhealthy things that continue to hinder us all. I don't care what color you are. Hate comes in all colors. Mm-hmm. , white, black, yellow, green, whatever way. But if we can deal with some of those issues, the bitterness and those roots of bitterness, why are our communities so bitter? What's going on that we can't come together and talk about it? If you are mad, I'm, I'm cool with you being mad, but can we talk about it? Can, can we reason together in the multitude of council, there can be some safety. If we come in, in a collective way and deal with it, there can be some safety in that.Danielle (00:54:27):The, uh, I was just, and I see your hand, Jessica, I, I was like thinking so much. And Maria, I know you were there with me of our meeting last week with these families that, you know, they came out almost 50 families, you know, 50 people show up to a meeting Thanksgiving week.Maria (00:54:47):And, and I thought, there's so much hope. And just showing up and, and in the showing up, you know, the meeting was advertised. I saw some for like six 15, some for six 30. I got there at six because my phone rang and someone said, Hey, where are you? I said, well, I'm not there yet. They said, well, hurry up. We're here,Oh, it's like six o'clock. So I pulled up, you know, and I got there and the principal was opening the door. And I had emailed early in the day and I said, well, you know, I don't know who's gonna show up because this thing went out over Instagram. It went out, you know, word of mouth.Danielle (00:55:29):And when people got there, y you know, they, the setup was to share stories and then to work towards solutions. But you could see when the invitation was to work towards solutions, people just stayed quiet. Cuz they were like, no, we have more stories to share. And, and let me tell you, we we had to cut it off at like eight 15. Eight. Yeah. Because people were not done and not everybody got a chance to share there. But I think about those families ended, and Maria, you can speak to this too, like, they were like, when is the next meeting? And we had, you know, one of the main leaders from the Latina community was, was speaking and saying like, Hey, like we have problem, you know, we've had problems with the African American community and we, where are they? Like, we know they're suffering.Like, she didn't say it like that, but basically like, we are not the only people of color here that are experiencing this. So, um, that gave me a lot of hope. The ability to show up and the stories they shared, I think are compounded, like what you say, the history, when you name the history, I'm like, oh crap, we're repeating all of this right now in live time. Like, it's happened yesterday. It happened, probably happened today, probably happened tomorrow. Like, we actually haven't, like slowed it down. It doesn't feel like, but Maria, Jessica, like, feel free to jump in. That's kind of where I was at.Jessica (00:56:59):So Danielle, I guess I wanted to jump in. I guess a couple things, especially, you know, after hearing, you know, Aku talk, you know, one of the things I think government should be doing is, you know, addressing, you know, inequities head on. And, um, some of you might follow, uh, the health district on, on social media. But, um, two weeks ago, um, the health district did a Facebook post recognizing transgender Awareness week. Now, this is the first time the health district has ever done a post like that. And you wouldn't believe, well, actually you would believe the amount of hate that we got. But I have to tell you though, before we declared racism a public health crisis and really got deep into this work, I don't know if we would've ever done a post like that. Um, but you know, it was a conversation between the equity program and our communications program.Our, our communications folks were all on board. They even bumped this, this idea for this post up to our administrator who was supportive of it. He goes, Hey, just make sure that you include our mission statement that, you know, our job is to promote the health of all people in Kitsap County. And, and I was really proud of the agency because I, you know, as government, sometimes we have to be careful about how we speak and sometimes it's hard to be the first. But to be honest, I didn't see any other governmental entity. And you all can check, please check me on this. But I didn't see any other governmental entity make that comment, you know, make that statement that we support our lgbtq plus and our transgender neighbors, loved ones, community members. Um, and so this was a small thing, but this is where, you know, um, you know, there, there are these huge changes that we need to make as a culture, right?And, and, and government structures. But even if it's just the acknowledgement of the suffering of people and the fact that we are, we see them, we honor them, and we're there with them is huge. Um, and, and, you know, and I give kudos to, to, to to you Danielle and, and Aku. Cause I know y'all have been having these community conversations. So having, giving people a space to share their truth and their experiences is huge. And when you can bring government officials there to hear it, because often, and, and I, and I'm speaking broadly, I mean, I I I've been in government for almost 15 years, so I, not an expert, but I've been in it long enough. You know, we tend to like the quantitative data, right? The numbers. And I think as an public health in general, there's been this big movement about, and I'm gonna use my my nerd term, but disaggregating data.So looking at the numbers, but saying, oh, well, let's see, can we break this down? What is our Asian community experiencing? Or Pacific Islander? And that gives some depth to it. But then also realizing that there are sub-communities within this community. And, you know, um, Maria and I were talking about, um, VN Voices of the Pacific Island network. They had an event earlier this year, and they had some data that showed that not all Pacific Islanders have the same educational experiences and this educational outcomes. So on, on the one hand, you know, government, we love numbers. Well, we need to dig deeper into those numbers, right? Break things down and really figure out what our community's experiencing. And sometimes in public health, we're like, oh, if the community's too small, then the analysis might not be enough. Who cares? Just still bring that data up.And that's where you compliment it with the stories, right? The qualitative data. And this is something where I think when you think of governments as white supremacists, right? You know, there's this need for productivity. And you have to, for every media you go to, you have to show what specific outcomes you have. Well, that's also something I'm hoping to change slowly at the, at the agency too. But, um, but also with data and, and the, the importance of storytelling and catching these stories and elevating them. And one of the things that, um, and you know, Kang Marie can talk about this. When we had our first health equity collaborative meeting, I got a question by a community member who was skeptical, right? Because their experience was when they've worked with government, they have gotten roadblock after roadblock after roadblock. And having to be honest and be like, look, here's what I can do as a manager of a program of two people.But at that meeting, we had a, the health officer there, and he is one of our highest officials at the health district. He's like our Spock, um, if you're a Star Trek nerd, but, um, which Memorial Star Wars. But, um, you know, our chief science officer was there. My supervisor who was a director was there. So, I mean, one thing I'm also hoping with, with these collaborative meetings, if, if they're meeting community meetings, also just throw that out there where you think having the health district be present is important and you want somebody with a director or administrator in their title. That's also something that, um, you know, I can also, I can also help facilitate. But something also, Danielle or maybe actually, um, Kayleigh, to your point, you know, we talk about this work, but how do we support each other? So we support each other in terms of, um, you know, bring cross-disciplinary, but then also really elevating the fact that we need that self-care and that connection and the fact that this is such heavy work.Um, you know, Maria and I have mentioned, we, we, we've helped with some of these, uh, focus groups for the kids at community resources. The stories are, are just heartbreaking. Um, and whether it's our youth and how they experience bullying, our elders who are experiencing lack of care, you know, lack of resources, and they just need some additional help. And you don't have that necessarily multi-generational household like you did before. So they don't have the supports that they had in the past. There's so much going on. But I think also all of us doing this kind of work, taking care of each other as well, and then also letting people know it's, it's okay to not be okay. Um, so anyway, I just, I just wanted to throw that out there too.Maria (01:02:33):So I've been pondering Akuyea, uh, question towards the end and she said, how do we do this work? How do we, um, collaborate and, um, bring about solutions? And something that, uh, Jessica mentioned fairly early on when she spoke, she said, the importance of letting go of ego, right? Leaving our ego at the door and, uh, working collaborative with one each other o one another as we do this work. And then the second thing is listening. And that's the one thing I've really learned as, um, uh, community engagement specialists, uh, working with Jessica, is that when I bring concerns to her or other community members, bring concerns to her, she listens, and then she acts, she does, whether it's something that, it's a long-term thing that will take a while to address or something that we can address quickly. Uh, she keeps this wonderful worksheets and she keeps track of where she's at on different projects. And so I think being able to be transparent, because since she shares that information, she shared some of that information at the health equity, um, collaborative meeting that we had. Um, I think that's how we build trust with our community members, that when they come, uh, to our organization, that we will not just listen, but we will act now. It might not be immediate, but we will be taken action. Um, and so, um, that's something that I've learned just in my one month at the public health district with Jessica.Jump in. Thank you, Jessica. Thank you for that. One of the things that, you know, I was talking with one of my, um, equity sisters, Carrie Augusta, and as we were reading through the newspaper and stuff, you know, she said, you know, we need to be looking at patterns of oppression. Are we doing that in a collective way? Just looking at the patterns, those patterns keep manifesting. It doesn't matter if it's manifesting with the African American community, the Hispanic community, the Pacific Islander community, whatever community is, are we looking, are we looking at those patterns of oppression? That's key for us to move forward as we do the work. Because in order for us to address, uh, and undo some of these things, we gotta identify 'em. We've gotta take time to sit down and identify these patterns that keep, you know, go. You know, that just like when we were, were dealing with, you know, with, uh, the racism on Bainbridge Island, you know, uh, it manifests itself back in the nineties and then again in the two early 2000. But I said, look at the, they go on ground for a little while and then they come back out.But look at the patterns of how they begin to, to do that work, uh, of, of, um, you know, racism. Look at the pattern of it. Look at how it shows up. Look at how it, it manifests itself in our institutions, in our workplaces, you know, in those areas that we are in on a daily basis. Don't matter in the schools. Look, they've been dealing with racism in the schools forever. Ever since Little Rock nine, they've been dealing with racism in the schools. And that was because why? Because racism was alive and well, and LA racism is still alive and well. So how do we begin to move these things and begin to address these things in a way that's gonna shift the policy and procedures? It should not be allowed in the institutional, shouldn't be allowed in the schools, shouldn't be allowed in our city governments, if you're serving all of us, if you are serving every one of those students, why are we dealing with what's happening at North Kitsap School District? And, and there's some questions I think that we need to be asking to administration and to those superintendents and to those staff members, because they're the ones that hold those practices in place, whether they're just or unjust. Who are the gatekeepers?Yeah. You gotta see who's gatekeeping and who's gatekeeping what, and, and really doing the, that type of visioning to be able to address these disparities or, or address the racism or address all of these inequities. Because if you got a principal that's gate keeping it, why do you think it keeps coming up?Danielle (01:08:20):Because it's us who hold these things in, in place. Human beings hold these practices in place. None of us get away. All of us are accountable. Mm-hmm. , it's, it's not just, that's when that one, that one, no, it's us. It's all of us who hold these practices and these policies in place. It's whether you will or whether you won't.So tho those are the things I think when we can get down to those foundational principles on how to address, and really, are we asking the right questions? Because they'll have us running off on a, a wild goose chase on something that, that , I'm just saying that don't even that, that is totally gonna miss the mark. You know, because if we, if we just keep pruning this thing, pruning it, pruning it, and never getting down to the root of it, we ain't plucking up nothing. We, we, we, all we doing is making it flourish and thrive. Because why do we prune? We prune things so it can come back healthier and stronger. I'm just, I'm just using these parables so we can see what we doing. Are we just pruning this thing? Are we getting to the root of it so we can pluck it up? Because if we're not, I think we're missing, we need to go back and revision and revisit and re-question and ask those. What's the, because you all know what's the root causeWhat's the root cause to the disparities that's happening, Jessica, in your departments or at the health district? What's the root cause when you are up in these schools and these things keep on, um, coming up and manifesting? What's the root causeDanielle (01:10:43):Go back. Do, do that questioning, just ponder. Just look at it. But let's, let's get our chart out. Let's see what's happening, and then, then we can have a real good conversation about next steps and how we can move forward and what we gonna do.Danielle (01:11:07):Kaylee, I saw your hand raised. Um, and, and I just wanted to say, like briefly after that meeting, I had a post up on Instagram, uh, highlighting the article, and I had over 400 likes, but 300 of them were from local students. And I had over a hundred private messages to me, and I screenshot them. And, and it wasn't just Latino students, it was black students, it was white students, it was, you know, L G B T Q community. Like they're ba I, what I understood from that is like, come on, get to work. Like, and I've, I've sent the screenshots, you know, to Maria and a few to Kali and some toku, you know, um, because they're important. The messages they give were important. Um, but yeah. Kaylee, jump in.Kalie (01:12:00):Yeah, I just, I mean, I love the questions that are being asked and Aku, some of your metaphors are like so amazingly helpful. Um, the pruning, uh, like I, yes, like I, I think that that is part of it is not getting to the root. And I think one of the things that Danielle and I have been trying to work on in our groups is also what you mentioned Maria, is like, we have to be able to listen to each other. And I think like from a mental health standpoint and the impact of racism, like there is so much shame, so people cannot listen. I mean, especially speaking from a white person, my own racism, having to work through that and, and then when I, like me as a white person in these conversations, right? So many people cannot hear like, we're never getting down to that.And like that is part of what I think we're trying to address in those small group settings is like, how to teach people to dig down deep and actually, like, what is happening in your body in these conversations. And I think, like, I feel like this like top like both and like the accountability you're talking about a kue, like, has to be, because some people will never, ever be able to get to what is deep down and actually deal with it. And if there isn't accountability, I don't, we're not, we're not gonna cut any of that rot out . But I think like, yeah, like trying to continue to figure out how to get down to that root and deal with people's shame and the fear that like racism has taught you so that you can actually listen so that we can actually collaborate. Um, and I mean, I obviously am speaking to my white, uh, community members that it's like, that is our work as white people that we have to work down to, like what prevents us from listening and hearing and changing and holding other white people accountable. Um, so that's where that was taking me.Jessica (01:14:07):So Kue, you asked about, you know, the root cause of inequities. And I don't necessarily have the answer, but I wanna to share. Um, I, I've seen a growing conversation, um, kinda in public health circles about power as a social determinant of health. So when public health people use the term social determinants of health, they're looking at what social factors affect health. Um, there are different models out there, but most public health experts agree that more affects health besides what you eat and how much you exercise. It's the social and cultural factors. It's, it's, it's, um, the economy, it's your built environment like, you know, access to sidewalks, parks and things like that, racism, discrimination, so many things impact health. And what i, I appreciate about power as a factor in health is because that's where you see governments needing to stop holding onto power so much, right?And so there are some, um, agencies that are starting to dismantle that a bit. So I, I wanna elevate, for example, um, our, our colleagues in, so our public health colleagues in Tacoma Pierce County. So they have a budgeting process where they allow the community to help them set budget priorities. We're not there yet as a health district, I hope someday to actually advocate for that as well. But it's looking at how do we share power with our community and how do we also foster community building as well? So like, in, and, and you know, you'll probably know the Square than I do, but just as, as, as an observer, I've noticed like an increase in the number of nonprofits and people wanting to do really amazing work. Um, you know, um, helping other people. But there's that lack of capacity. Oh, you know, people might start nonprofit, but they might not have all the training that they need.Um, so as, as a community looking at power and how do we shift that and doing a power analysis, and I, I think you've talked to me about this, you know, really looking at who holds power in Kitsap County and how do we work together to, to to share that power. Um, so, so there, there, there's that piece. But then also, um, you know, Kuya talked about training, right? And so for me, a lo

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Selasa, 13 Desember 2022 Bacaan: "Aku bersyukur kepada-Mu oleh karena kejadianku dahsyat dan ajaib; ajaib apa yang Kaubuat, dan jiwaku benar-benar menyadarinya." ( Mazmur 139:14) Renungan: "Mengapa orang menangis ketika bahagia?" Ini adalah sebuah ungkapan perasaan yang sering dipertanyakan oleh para ahli. Kita pasti pernah melihat orang yang mengungkapkan kegembiraan dan rasa haru yang mendalam dengan cara menangis. Ini pernah diteliti oleh seorang psikolog. Setelah mendalami pengalaman unik beberapa orang, ia berkesimpulan bahwa mereka yang bereaksi secara negatif terhadap pengalaman kegembiraan biasanya sedang berusaha untuk memulihkan keseimbangan emosi di dalam dirinya dan menjaga perasaan emosi yang luar biasa agar tetap terkendali Waktu orang dikuasai oleh emosi positif yang sangat dalam, secara alamiah orang berusaha menyeimbangkannya dengan menampilkan ekspresi emosi yang negatif. Demikian juga sebaliknya. Itulah cara tercepat untuk kembali mengendalikan diri dari emosi yang dalam. Jadi sekarang kita bisa mengerti mengapa orang menangis bahagia ketika melihat anaknya menikah, menangis mendengar musik yang sangat agung, menangis ketika pertama kali mendapat seorang anak, menangis ketika hadir di sebuah konser, menangis ketika anaknya kembali dari tugas perang atau tertawa ketika menghadapi situasi terjepit dan tidak ada jalan keluar, tersenyum ketika menghadapi kesedihan yang dalam atau ketika diperlakukan dan dihina. Ini adalah sebuah cara untuk mengembalikan keseimbangan emosi diri. Tuhan Sang pencipta adalah Tuhan yang luar biasa. Karena Dia ajaib, ajaib juga manusia ciptaan-Nya. "..Kejadianku dahsyat dan ajaib," demikian kata Daud. Tuhan menciptakan manusia sedemikian komplet, manusia terdiri dari tubuh, jiwa dan roh. Bayangkan manusia itu terdiri dari 100 triliun sel, otak manusia yang setara dengan komputer super, jantung yang memompa darah tiap detik, mata yang dapat membedakan warna, rambut yang tumbuh setiap hari, sidik jari yang berbeda setiap orang, dan lain-lain. Semua menunjukkan betapa ajaibnya kita. Tuhan memperhatikan bagian detail dari setiap bagian tubuh manusia, termasuk air mata. Bersyukurlah, karena kita diciptakan Tuhan dengan ajaib. Oleh karena itu jangan sia-siakan tubuh kita. Muliakanlah Tuhan dengan tubuh kita. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, aku bersyukur karena kejadianku dahsyat dan ajaib. Engkau menenunku dalam kandungan ibuku. Aku mau memuliakanmu dengan tubuhku. Amin. (Dod).

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Sabtu, 10 Desember 2022 Bacaan: Lalu Ia memandang mereka dan berkata: "Pergilah, perlihatkanlah dirimu kepada imam-imam." Dan sementara mereka di tengah jalan mereka menjadi tahir." (Lukas 17:14) Renungan: Ketika Yesus akan memasuki sebuah kampung, maka datanglah 10 orang kusta yang telah diasingkan di luar kampung. Mereka telah mendengar berita tentang perbuatan Yesus yang menyembuhkan banyak orang, dan ketika mereka melihat Yesus, maka berteriaklah mereka secara serentak, "Yesus, Guru, kasihanilah kami!" Dari kejauhan 10 orang kusta tersebut memohon kesembuhan dari Yesus. Melihat harapan di mata ke-10 orang tersebut, maka jatuhlah belas kasihan di hati Yesus dan berkata, "Pergilah, perlihatkanlah dirimu kepada imam-imam." Ke-10 orang kusta itu tidak dapat berkomentar apa-apa lagi, karena Yesus telah memerintahkan mereka untuk memperlihatkan diri kepada para imam, Padahal mereka belum menceritakan penderitaan yang mereka alami. Dan dalam benak mereka berkecamuk pertanyaan, "Mengapa Yesus menyuruh kami memperlihatkan diri kepada imam, sedangkan Ia mengetahui bahwa para imam pasti akan menolak untuk bertemu dengan kami, karena kami dianggap najis." Tetapi Karena diperintah Yesus, mau tidak mau mereka berjalan menuju kampung untuk menunjukkan diri kepada para imam, belum lagi mereka berjalan jauh, tiba-tiba seluruh kulit mereka yang tadinya memutih kini berubah menjadi normal. Tidak terlihat tanda-tanda bahwa mereka pernah menderita kusta. Ke-10 orang yang telah lahir itu begitu bersukacita, mereka berlari-lari menuju kampung, supaya mendapat pernyataan dari imam bahwa mereka telah sembuh dan diperbolehkan hidup sebagai orang normal. Salah seorang dari ke-10 orang yang telah tahir itu berhenti, kemudian berbalik dan mengejar Yesus. Dia tersungkur di kaki Tuhan Yesus itu dan berkata, "Aku adalah seorang Samaria yang najis, tetapi engkau, Tuhan telah menyembuhkanku. Aku mengucap syukur karena menemukan Allah yang hidup." Dengan wajah yang penuh pertanyaan Yesus berkata, "Bukankah ada 10 orang yang menjadi tahir, mengapa hanya engkau sendiri yang kembali? Di manakah yang 9 orang lainnya? Tidak adakah di antara mereka yang kembali untuk memuliakan Allah selain dari engkau wahai orang asing?" Kemudian Yesus berkata kepada orang Samaria itu, "Berdirilah dan pergilah, imanmu telah menyelamatkan engkau." Di saat mengalami kesukaran kita berseru-seru kepada Tuhan, meminta pertolongannya dengan penuh belas kasihan. Tuhan mengulurkan tangannya dan menolong kita. Tetapi setelah menikmati segala berkat yang melimpah, seringkali kita lupa diri dan berlaku tidak setia kepadanya, seperti kesembilan orang kusta yang tidak tahu berterima kasih itu. Jika kita menyadari bahwa kita adalah orang yang sudah ditahirkan dari segala dosa dan menerima kebaikan Tuhan yang melimpah, maka sudah selayaknyalah kita mengucap syukur dan tersungkur di bawah kaki-Nya. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, kepicikan telah membuat aku lupa bahwa Engkau adalah Tuhan yang mendatangkan segala kebaikan dalam hidupku. Ampunilah aku ya Tuhan karena tidak tahu bersyukur dan tidak berlaku setia di hadapan-Mu. Amin. (Dod).

Kencan Dengan Tuhan - Rabu, 7 Desember 2022 Bacaan: "Segala sesuatu yang kamu kehendaki supaya orang perbuat kepadamu, perbuatlah demikian juga kepada mereka. Itulah isi seluruh hukum Taurat dan kitab para nabi." (Matius 7:12) Renungan: Seorang bijak di sebuah kota suatu ketika didatangi oleh orang asing. Orang asing Itu menjelaskan bahwa ia adalah orang baru di kota itu, lalu bertanya, "Orang seperti apa yang akan saya temui di kota ini?" Kata orang bijak itu, "Orang seperti apa yang kau ditemui di kota asalmu?" Jawab orang asing itu, "Mereka adalah orang-orang paling buruk, mereka pemabuk, penipu dan pencuri. Tidak ada orang baik di antara mereka." Orang bijak itu menggelengkan kepalanya dengan sedih lalu berkata, "Aku khawatir orang-orang di kota ini persis seperti itu." Setelah orang asing pertama itu pergi, datanglah orang asing lain. Ia juga menjelaskan kepada orang bijak tersebut bahwa ia orang baru di kota itu. Kemudian ia bertanya, "Orang seperti apa yang akan ditemui di kota tersebut?" Orang bijak itu kembali bertanya, "Orang seperti apa yang kau temui di kota asalmu?" Jawab orang asing itu, "Mereka adalah orang-orang yang ramah dan selalu siap menolong orang lain. Mereka adalah orang-orang terbaik yang dapat anda temui." Orang bijak itu tersenyum dan berkata, "Seperti itulah saya akan menggambarkan orang-orang di kota ini." Setelah orang asing kedua pergi, seorang wanita yang kebetulan mendengarkan percakapan itu bertanya, "Aku tidak mengerti, bagaimana anda dapat mengatakan kepada seseorang bahwa kota ini sangat buruk dan kemudian mengatakan kepada orang lain bahwa kota ini sangat baik?" Orang bijak tersebut menjelaskan, "Karena engkau biasanya mendapatkan dari orang lain apa yang kau harapkan dari mereka. Jika seseorang memperlakukan orang lain seakan-akan dia berharap mereka menjadi pemabuk penipu dan pencuri mereka akan seperti itu. Tetapi jika seseorang memperlakukan orang lain seakan-akan dia berharap mereka akan ramah dan suka menolong, maka seperti itulah yang kau dapatkan dari mereka. Cerita ini menggambarkan bahwa cara kita memperlakukan orang lain akan menentukan cara mereka memperlakukan kita. Karena itulah Tuhan Yesus berkata bahwa apapun yang kita kehendaki agar orang lain perbuat kepada kita, demikianlah hendaknya kita perbuat kepada mereka (Mat 7:12). Dengan kata lain, sebagaimana kita ingin diperlakukan dengan baik oleh orang lain, hendaklah kita juga memperlakukan mereka dengan baik. Maksud Tuhan Yesus di sini adalah, kasihilah orang lain sebagaimana kita ingin dikasih oleh mereka. Itulah sebabnya Tuhan Yesus menyebut hal ini sebagai "isi seluruh hukum Taurat dan kitab para nabi." Karena memang inti ajaran dari Kitab Suci yang begitu banyak itu hanya dua, yaitu mengasihi Tuhan dan mengasihi sesama. Arti mengasih orang lain adalah tidak berbuat jahat kepada mereka. Jika ini kita lakukan maka kita telah melakukan inti seluruh ajaran Kitab Suci. Tuhan Yesus memberkati. Doa: Tuhan Yesus, ajarilah aku mengasihi sesamaku sebagaimana aku ingin dikasihi, karena itulah inti seluruh perintah-Mu kepadaku. Amin. (Dod).
