Surviving the holidays seminars scheduled


GREENVILLE – A GriefShare Surviving the Holiday seminar, partnered by Greenville First Assembly of God and EUM Church, will be held at 6 p.m. Oct. 16 and 10 a.m. Oct. 20 in the Greenville Public Library’s third floor Community Room, 520 Sycamore St.

The two seminars are provided for those who can only attend one or the other. Child care is not available.

The seminar features practical suggestions and reassurance through video interviews with counselors, grief experts and other people who have experienced the holidays after their loved one’s death. Guests will hear insights from respected Christian counselors, pastors and psychologists. They’ll receive handouts with practical strategies plus other valuable information for daily survival through the holiday season. Topics to be discussed include dealing with hard-hitting emotions, what to do about traditions, how to survive social events and where to find comfort and strength.
