Grief is a country you enter without meaning to. It's a club you never asked to join. Loss alters our lives irrevocably, and yet, somehow, the darkness is where new life is formed. Somewhere along the way, we find we are living again. Loss inevitably changes us, and it can make us stronger, and more attuned to love in our lives. Join us as we hear The Rev. John B. Reid share from his own experiences as a counselor, priest, and fellow griever about the grief process and what it means to be on a healing journey, holding our losses and our joys with equal reverence.
Free, all are welcome
Light Dinner will be served at 6pm
Please RSVP by May 16th to: firstname.lastname@example.org so we know to order enough food.
