GriefShare offers healing and comfort


GREENVILLE — When you’re grieving the death of a family member or friend, your sadness can seem unbearable. Do thoughts of social gatherings, obligations and everyday responsibilities leave you anxious and overwhelmed? What can you do to lessen your stress and loneliness? Where can you find out what emotions to expect in the coming months, how to manage them and how to communicate with family and friends who seem helpless to understand what you are going through?

GriefShare is a video seminar series that features some of the nation’s foremost Christian experts on grief and recovery topics as seen from a biblical perspective. You’ll hear insights from respected Christian counselors, pastors, and psychologists on various topics that you may encounter. You’ll receive valuable information to help you move forward in your new normal. The video seminars are combined with support group discussion of the materials presented during the video. You will be able to talk freely among others who understand the pain of losing a loved one—confidentiality and respect are the rule. The workbook encourages journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly session topics.

GriefShare begins Saturday, Jan. 20 from 10 a.m. to noon. GriefShare is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence and are welcome to begin attending the group at any point. This group will help you create a healthy plan and how to communicate with others during those event-filled weeks. They will meet at the EUM Downtown Campus, 111 Devor St., Greenville. To find peace and move forward in your journey, call the EUM Church office, 937-548-3211, Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. to register and for more information.
