“It has been said that sometimes we need a story more than food in order to live.”

Our next Healing Circles for Grief and Loss will be this Sunday, July 24, after the 11:05 service at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. We will meet in Feller’s Room (S-312) at 12:15 p.m. and lunch will be provided. We will again break into 2 circles with facilitators (hosts), and move into separate rooms. The circles will be completed by 2 p.m.
In this circle you are invited to share the story of your loss. Try to capture it in five sentences, marking important aspects of your experience. Please write it down and bring it to share in circle.
If you missed our circle last month, you are welcome to join in this week – everyone will be invited to share. And if you are unable to attend this coming Sunday and are interested to continue, please let us know. For those interested in a weekday circle, we hope to start a third circle next month. Please advise and we will be in touch.
