Are You Hurting? Growing thru Grief offers year-round support for those who have lost a loved one. Here is the schedule of speakers for the next few weeks:
May 14 — Betsy Barton, “The Five Invitations: Thoughts on Living Fully”
May 21 — Amy Onstead will open the small group conversations
May 28 — Nell Noonam will guide us in “Summoning Memories”
June 11 — Marge Satinsky will lead us with “Healing Yoga”
June 25 — Evelyn Reed’s topic is “Control Issues in Grief and Life”
During weeks without a formal speaker, one of our facilitators will start the group conversations. Growing thru Grief is a free, open, confidential program sponsored by a coalition of area religious and civic organizations (including Epworth UMC) to provide support and comfort to those who mourn. Meetings are held year-round on Tuesdays (except for holidays) at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 1200 W. Cornwallis. We gather at 4 pm for registration, coffee, and cookies; the meeting, a presentation plus small group discussion, starts at 4:30 p.m. and ends by 6 p.m.
