TimeBanking Comes to Shaker Heights
The Greater Heights Community TimeBank is now online at www.greaterheights.timebanks.org. This community building organization is being co-sponsored by HCC along with other area churches and members of the community.
What is TimeBanking?
It's a way of giving and receiving to help others as well as yourself. It helps build strong communities.
TimeBanking is about "paying it forward" -- it is about reciprocity. Not just "how can I help you" but instead, "how can we help each other."
One hour of you helping another through a TimeBank earns you one TimeBank credit which you can then use to get help from someone else for something you need.
TimeBanking applies to everyone -- young people, teens, adults, seniors -- everyone has something to give and everyone needs something -- it is this reciprocity that makes TimeBanking work and is special to our community.
Interested? Come to the TimeBanking Orientation at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, September 14th at Heights Christian Church, 17300 Van Aken Blvd. Not available that day? Check the website for other days and locations?
Anyone can be involved in TimeBanking and all of us can help build community.
Edgar Kahn, "father" of TimeBanking, wrote: "Like clean air and water, we have always taken family and neighborhood and community for granted. Now, we need to flter the air and buy bottled water. Increasingly, we are having to buy foster care and kinship care and elder care. And the systems providing that care are breaking down. We need to invest in rebuilding family, neighborhood, community, and civil society."
Neighbors, friends and family are always welcome.
Sharing love in and around the Community!

In our prayers...
Open our eyes, Lord that we may see you.
Open our ears that we may hear your still, small voice.
And open our hearts that we may feel your presence this day and everyday. Amen.
