“Surviving the Holidays” Community Seminar December 7th
FOR THE ANTIGO TIMES
GriefShare: Surviving the Holidays is a helpful, encouraging seminar for people facing the holidays after a loved one’s death. The seminar, which Peace Lutheran Ministries is hosting for the community, will be held Monday, December 7th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. There is no cost to attend.
This nondenominational seminar features practical suggestions and reassurance through video interviews with Christian counselors & grief experts, and other people who have experienced the holidays after their loved one’s death. Topics to be discussed include dealing with hard-hitting emotions, what to do about traditions, how to survive social events, and where to find comfort and strength.
Those who attend will receive a “Survival Guide” booklet filled with practical tips, encouraging words, journaling ideas, and exercises for daily help through the holiday season.
