What is it to “Face Life’s Losses”?

Life is full of painful losses that must be grieved, but many of us have found that our culture does not welcome grief nor supply the support we need to face the pain and let it go. This interactive seminar looks at what we grieve, how we grieve, how to move through the process of grieving including journaling with God about our regrets, our need to forgive and any anger we may be feeling.

This is an introductory/information sharing event based on Facing Life’s Losses.  This seminar will introduce foundational elements that broaden understanding of grief and loss (it's not just about loss through death). We will discuss relational circuits, introduce and experience Immanuel prayer and journaling, give an overview of the class content and the structure for a caring and sharing group, and survey the group as to interest and availability for both a class and a caring and sharing group.  

The seminar will be taught by Lib Gillam, MSW, LCSW, a member of the Church of the Apostles congregation, who will be teaching and using Facing Life’s Losses developed and adapted by Betsy Stalcup.

Free Nursery and childcare will be available with advance registration.
