There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
This is Ecclesiastes 3 verses 1-8. The time for the Omaha Career Networking group has come to an end. With the extremely low unemployment the influx of people seeking assistance has dwindled to the point of it being little benefit to those that attend.
It is hard to justify asking guest speakers to come and chat to a group of 4 or 5 people.
In addition and in verses 3 and 7, there is a time to “heal “and “mend,” which is something I need to personally do at the present time.
If anyone is interested in in carrying on as the group facilitator, let me know and I will be willing to pass along anything I can to help. Reply to this email with your interests.
The website will remain active for a while as will the various groups, although I may not reply to any messages.
The last official meeting of the OCN was held on October 16, 2018.
It has been a blessing to help the hundreds of people over the past 8 years and I wish everyone continued success in the future.
