Wednesday, Oct. 25: "I Don't Know What To Say: Comforting Those Who Mourn" Class, 3:30 -5:00 p.m.
Often, we don't know how to help someone who is grieving. The bereaved struggle with intense emotions, including anger, guilt, and deep sadness after the death of a loved one. If you're worried about saying or doing the wrong thing at this difficult time, you're not alone. Join us as we explore practical ways to offer comfort and support, and practice the art of compassionate consolation. Led by Lara McKinnis (Bereavement Team Leader, Four Seasons Hospice) and Rev. Jean Goodwin (Assistant Pastor).
