Grace St. Paul’s “Nurturing the Grieving Heart”
A Soul Support Group
Fridays, January 5 - February 9, 4 - 5:30pm
Loss comes to all of us at different times in our lives. The loss of a beloved partner, family member, friend, animal companion, job, health, or housing can feel overwhelming and isolating. While others might be eager for us to “get over and on with it,” grief doesn’t adhere to any timetable. We know now that grief is not only a feeling, but it also manifests in body, mind, and spirit, and in our relationships with self, others, and Divine Presence. Living with grief can feel like trudging through mud, every day unrelenting and sapping our energy and jealously claiming our attention. We can feel hopeless and exhausted, short on sleep and long on weeping. Grief is both individual and collective, and when the larger community suffers, individual grief can be awakened or aggravated.
The Nurturing the Grieving Heart Soul Support Group will be a safe place to explore our grief experience and its potential for spiritual transformation. This group is experiential with guided meditations, prayer, short readings, and opportunities to share our experience, strength, and hope, within a supportive environment. Those with all kinds of grief experiences are welcome.
This group will meet for eight weeks on FRIDAY afternoons from 4 to 5:30 pm starting January 5, 2024. It will be co-facilitated by the Rev. Delle McCormick, and Aileen Loranger. Your sharing will be confidential, and materials will be provided. Please call the Church Office at 520-327-6857 to preregister. If you have attended before, please come again. This will be offered on Zoom. And if you feel intimidated by, or unfamiliar with the technology, Delle or Aileen can help you navigate that, so you can join us.
