“Every great loss demands that we choose life again. We need to grieve in order to do this. The pain we have not grieved over will always stand between us and life. When we don’t grieve, a part of us becomes caught in the past.”
– Rachel Naomi Remen
The August Healing Circles for Grief and Loss will be on Sunday, August 21st, 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 blessings and joy. 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.
