We’ve had a number of folks who have experienced the loss of a loved one recently. “Recently” in terms of grief could be a few weeks or a few years, but the process of grieving is not bound by time. The class on grief we offered two Wednesday nights in
November helped us see the need to do more for people who are hurting.
Fortunately, there are at least two folks in the Hominy family who have made it part of their life’s work to help others who are grieving. Reverend Charles Kirby, retired chaplain, and Reverend Pat Stillwell, nurse and pastoral counselor, have agreed to lead a GriefShare group Sunday afternoons from 2- 4 pm beginning March 11 for six weeks. They are well-trained, experienced and kindhearted ministers who will guide this group through a six week process and then help participants decide if they want to continue to meet.
In Grief Share you will find
* people who understand your hurts, emotions, and painful experiences
* helpful, practical information that will help you recover from the pain of grief and loss
* the chance to talk about your experiences and move towards healing.
