Please join us at the Pavilion in Grass Valley, Oregon, for our Sherman County Historical Society Fall Program and Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon at 1 p.m. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. and after lunch the Wasco County Pioneer Man of 2019, John Brookhouse, will give a program on the history of a local section of the Columbia River. A small settlement or town called Celilo was located in an area between the mouth of the Deschutes River and Celilo Falls. This small town was known for the construction of steamships that navigated the upper part of the Columbia River. Lunch is $12 and our active volunteers eat for free!

4. The Cascade Singers Present “A Parker-Shaw Christmas,” Dec. 7 & 8

The Cascade Singers Present “A Parker-Shaw Christmas,” the title for the Cascade Singers’ December 7 and 8 holiday concert.  Performances take place at Zion Lutheran Church, 10th and Union Streets, The Dalles.  Saturday’s concert begins at 7 p.m. and the Sunday concert starts at 3 p.m.  The late Robert Shaw was one of the preeminent choral directors of the second half of the 20th century.   Alice Parker was Shaw’s student who began her own career arranging music for the Robert Shaw Chorale.  She later led her own choirs and continues to compose and arrange music at age 94.  The Parker-Shaw collaboration produced a rich body of choral music, often based on folk tunes, hymns, and in the December event, Christmas carols.  The concert will also include J.S. Bach chorales and a piece for organ and choir from the romantic era.  Admission is by donation at the door.


5. Personal Power

What do the words “personal power” make you think of? These two words together could be perceived as either positive or negative. So, the question for today is, do you see yourself as a powerful person?

What you think about personal power will influence your ability to claim it and exercise it in your life. If you believe that power means either control or loss of control, without knowing why, you will hesitate to claim it.

If you think, even subconsciously, that power is bad, negative, angry, manipulative, abusive or intimidating, you won’t be motivated to empower yourself or others. Too many people have been conditioned to believe that “power” means “having power over,” but it is really not about that at all. Rather, it is about having the power “to” – to act, influence, cause or make happen, to create and to do.

Most importantly, power is not an external force. Instead of coming, as so many people believe, from economic or social status, education, successful careers or material wealth, power is first and foremost internal.

It comes from feeling that you have the final accountability and authority for your own life. It comes from feeling a strong, vital and respectful connection to others – family, friends, community and, in fact, all life on the planet. And this kind of personal power benefits others as much as it benefits you. And if you work it right, it benefits others more.

So, take some time to think about personal power. Then ask yourself, “Do I feel powerful?” If not, why not? If you do, then the next question becomes, “How do I use my power?” There are a great many answers to that question, and each reveals a facet of our personalities, and perhaps, our souls. ~The Pacific Institute
