Grieving our Losses: Living our Hope (2020) via ZOOM

The process of grief is a journey through darkness, brokenness and HOPE. Throughout life we experience loss of one kind or another. Grief is the normal response to losing what we love. Life is also very good and deeply enriching. It holds many promises of growth and experiences of joy. During our time together, we will allow ourselves to reverence “where we are” on the journey. We will rest our pain in the tender presence of God and one another.  

Logistics:  This is a virtual retreat using ZOOM.  The time is 10:00 to 11:30 AM..  A ZOOM link will be emailed to you the day before the presentations along with any handouts.  If you are unfamiliar with  ZOOM there are directions on the website under the Events/Retreat Tab.  There will be an optional session at 9 AM on the first day of the event for anyone who could use a practice session with ZOOM.
