Journey Through the Wilderness of Grief

sadness-717439 1920

Wednesday, Through December 4; 3:30 pm

I’ve had the opportunity to lead several grief support groups in the last several years, and I have been asked to facilitate a similar group ministry here at Lake Edge. My years of working as a nurse and as a pastor have helped me to develop an understanding of the power that grief has on us. If we don’t do the work of grief, if we don’t walk through the grief rather than around it, we deprive ourselves of having a full and loving life. Unresolved grief has a way of sneaking up on us and causing havoc in our lives. If someone significant in your life died, and you think you are still grieving, this is the place for you.
Our first session will be Wednesday, October 9th, beginning at 3:30 PM. The group will meet for 7 sessions, ending on December 4th. Please call the church office if you want to sign up. Pastor Martha Butzier
