Grace in Transition: Coping with Change starts January 23
Discover grace in periods of change with this seasonal small group. All of us are in transition. Some of us are struggling with children and elderly parents, some have just retired or are changing jobs, some are in the midst of a crisis of faith, some are adjusting or anticipating the loss of a loved one through death or divorce. All of us are aging, some faster than others, and are losing the abilities and opportunities we have treasured all our lives until now. We are in middle time - the place where our faith goes to die or to thrive. That is time when one stage of life is ending and another is beginning. For some we have been stuck in that place for a long time. Our hope is to find grace in the midst of transitions regardless of the stage or crisis. Each stage can prepare us for the next and the transition in between. 
Mondays 7:00 - 8:30 p.m., January 23 through April 10, Michaux House Room 205
