10 Principles of Positive Discipline

A five-week series of “10 Principles of Positive Discipline: Bringing Back the Joy and the Connection,” will explain conscious discipline — a shift from seeking to create an obedient child to nurturing a productive member of a family or classroom.

Classes will be held 9:15 to 11:15 a.m. Oct. 14, 28, Nov. 4, 11 and 18; 7 to 9 p.m. Oct. 14, 28, Nov. 4, 11 and 18; and 9:15 to 11:15 a.m. Oct. 18, 25, Nov. 1, 8 and 15 at Unity Life Enrichment Center at Williams on the Lake, 787 Lafayette Road, Medina.

Childcare will be available Tuesday evening sand Saturdays upon advance request.

All materials will be provided. Recommended reading is “Easy to Love, Difficult to Discipline” by Dr. Becky Bailey. Barbara Hribar, the class facilitator, has received training in conscious discipline from Bailey.

Call 330-764-7999 for information. The registration deadline is Oct. 7.

Evangelistic meetings

Evangelist Dea Warford from Corona, Calif., will minister at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 3, 7 p.m. Oct. 4 and 10:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. Oct. 5 at Litchfield Assembly of God, 9082 Norwalk Road, Litchfield Township.

Warford has been a frequent camp speaker, with appearances at colleges, radio broadcasts and television programs.

Warford, headed for a career in the Ku Klux Klan, was being groomed by his uncle, Charles Lynch, then considered the “most dangerous man in America” by the U.S. House Subcommittee on Un-American Activities. At one time, Warford’s goal was to become the Imperial Wizard of the KKK.
How Warford turned from the Klan to Christ is an unusual testimony, which he gives during his services.

Tibetan Buddhist programs

The first two weeks of October, a group of seven Tibetan Buddhist monks from Gaden Shartse Monastery will visit the Medina area. They will present two programs at RxYoga Center, 253-B S. Court St., Medina.

A presentation highlighting Tibetan culture will be offered from 1 to 3 p.m. Oct. 4, and a Tibetan Buddhist healing ritual will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Oct. 12.

The monks’ tour is for the benefit of the Charitable Hospital in India.

Donations are requested, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. For information, call 330-722-0661 or e-mail info@RxYoga.org.

Chicken dinner

From 5 to 7 p.m. the first Friday of each month, Crosspointe Community Church invites people to take a break from cooking and stop by for a breaded, baked chicken dinner.
Donations help fund ministries at Crosspointe. The next dinner will be held Oct. 3 at the church, located at 8731 Spencer Lake Road at Vande-mark Roads, Chatham Township. For information or to order takeout, call 330-723-9009.
