The end-of-year holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s) can be the most wonderful, joyous, and hopeful time of the year. But since our relationships give the holidays special meaning, holiday celebrations after the death of a loved one can go from joyous occasions to tedious events that must be survived.
On Sunday, November 10th, the Xenos Grief Ministry will provide a two-hour workshop, Grief & the Holidays, utilizing the GriefShare videos. This workshop will help you not only to "survive the holidays," but to find strength, healing, and tools to move forward through the deep pain of grief.
This event can be a great opportunity to reach out to your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family members who are in grief. It allows people in the local community to be aware of the kind of practical care they can receive from our fellowship. If someone you know would benefit from this workshop, please consider coming with him or her to support them.
There is no cost. To RSVP or ask any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
