Grief and Loss Workshop
11/13/2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm$10
What do we do about grief and loss in the Kingdom of God?
Join us for a half-day workshop facilitated by Mary Jean Powers.
Date: Saturday, Nov. 13th
Time: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
So many of us equate loss with death, the passing of a loved one. This is certainly a significant form of loss, yet there are so many other types of loss that we experience every day and we are too quick to write them off as insignificant.
This last year alone brought a magnitude of bereavement to each of us, even in unexpected ways.
To name a few:
- Loss of a job, financial security
- Loss of community and face-to-face connection
- Loss of progress
- Loss of hope, safety
- Loss from the wildfires and other natural disasters
- Loss of trips, vacations, travel
- Loss of celebrations, weddings, birthdays
- Loss of fitness or health
- Loss of taste and smell
- Loss of innocence
- Loss of security, power, or control
These types of losses are not unique to a pandemic or an election year.
They can happen daily, and when left unattended, can leave us bitter or fearful – even hard-hearted.
Throughout His Word, God gives us permission to truly mourn the losses in our lives. In fact, He has designed us to grieve and to mourn.
If you’re struggling to know how to mourn the loss you’ve experienced and the grief you feel, and you’d like some very practical, biblical input in a safe, no-pressure environment, please join us for a half-day seminar on Grief and Loss in the Kingdom of God.
