One of my favorite holiday songs is It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Most of us are turning up for the holidays and hoping as the song states that it will be the "Hap-happiest season of all."
However, there is another reality that many of us experience during the holidays. For those of us who have experience a loss, a death of a loved one or a divorce, the holidays can actually feel like the sad-saddest season of all.
If you are one of us who have experienced a loss and are wondering how you are going to make it through the holidays this year I want to invite you to Safe Harbor.
Coping with grief throughout the holidays and beyond
Sunday, November 20
Have you recently experienced divorce or the death of a loved one?
If so, the thought of the upcoming holiday season might feel daunting.
Safe Harbor is a place to share your grief,
learn coping strategies for the holidays, and experience support.
Safe Harbor is a port in the storm of grief.
We will share a meal, share our stories, and share support.
R.S.V.P. to Rev. Neal Kuhlhorst at firstname.lastname@example.org would be appreciated.
Hosted by Stephen Ministry, Caring Team, and Rev. Neal Kuhlhorst
Prayer for Today
Loving God, your Son Jesus taught us that those who mourn will be blessed with comfort. At this time of year, we ask your comfort on all who mourn and seek to understand their next steps in life. Amen.
