Every Long Journey
Rev. Linda Slabon
Curiosity is a gift but to act on it requires courage. Empathy is a skill and to learn it enables us to move from a place of shame to a place of compassion and courage. Come listen to the wisdom found in the words of musicians Holly Near and Ann Reed, researcher and author Brené Brown. Come hear messages of curiosity, empathy, and courage in the songs we'll sing, in the meditative music of crystal tone bowls, and in “Every Long Journey.”
Rev. Linda Slabon, LCSW, served the UU Fellowship of DeKalb for 26 years along with her spouse, Dr. Toni Tollerud, who served as Music Director. Now retired, Linda is a Minister Emerita, a DeKalb County Board member, Clinical Social Worker and completes the laundry at home promptly. A retired professor from Northern Illinois University, Toni does state-wide seminars on supervision and trauma, and gardens with a passion. Grandma Toni and Bionic Nana Linda (with her new titanium hips) love to sing with their three year old grand-daughter, Amelia.
