Mystery & The Great Sadness
One of the most powerful Seminars that the Meadow held last year was The Great Sadness.
The great sadness in our lives can be divorce, sickness, addiction, the death of a close friend or family member, failure, bankruptcy, or loss of employment, to name a few. It is a time when our faith in God is severely tested. The reality is that for all of us, there will be a time of great sadness in our lives.
A participant shared this with me
, “I am blessed that folks had the opportunity to share their grief with others in a holy, safe and spirit filled atmosphere. As a lay counselor and one who believes; healthy communication is absolutely necessary. When there is pain so deep in one's experience, here (The Meadow) is a safe place where people can go for solace. “
This four-week course featured several people share their intimate stories of a Great Sadness they had lived first hand. Not only did they share their stories, but also how God and the community of others helped them survive these devastating circumstances. It is a time of great hope, comfort, and support, filled with tears, forgiveness, and even laughter. If you know of someone who is experiencing a Great Sadness, let them know about this course. It will be a great comfort to them. This program is offered once a year but may be expanding to future dates.
